Tax Planning, Advice and Tax Return Preparation
At Anglia Advisors, we are generally uncomfortable with the idea of clients preparing and filing their own taxes unless they are super-simple. Every year, Americans leave literally billions of dollars on the table by not getting professional assistance and failing to properly fill out returns. We have access to a network of tax preparers at different price points, able to handle varying levels of complexity from the straightforward to the highly complex. For those who insist on being do-it-yourselfers, we can - for example - put you in touch with a service that will simply review and comment on your self-prepared return. We have access to a particular group of specialists in the areas of international tax preparation and overseas account reporting compliance.
Banking, Lending, Mortgages and Foreign Exchange Transactions
Obtaining the right mortgage for your circumstances is both a financial planning and cash flow question early on in the process. Once the parameters have been established, Anglia Advisors can bring in independent mortgage specialists who will do the research and the diligence to try and find the best mortgage deal for you. We also have access to special situation professionals who are familiar with the particular options available for self-employed individuals and newly-arrived foreign nationals who are likely to have difficulty obtaining financing through traditional channels. These non-citizens in particular may also need help with setting up properly functioning retail banking services and consumer loans and Anglia Advisors can put them in touch with institutions who take their particular circumstances into account. It is essential to find the best rate when moving money overseas necessitating a foreign exchange transaction.
