Bright!Tax is immensely proud to announce that we’ve been named as a finalist for the 2018 FEM Americas EMMA awards in two categories: Expat Tax Provider of the Year, and Expatriate Banking and Financial Services Innovation.
The Forum for Expatriate Management (FEM) inspires, informs and unites the Global Mobility community …
… via an online news and information portal, as well as hosting an annual calendar of international events.
The EMMA Awards, now entering their 8th year, celebrate excellence and innovation in the Global Mobility and Expat Service Provider industries, across a range of categories.
There are three awards events each year to recognize the best firms in each of three global regions, the Americas, Asia Pacific (APAC), and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
Bright!Tax dominated last year’s awards, winning Tax Provider of the Year in the Americas and APAC regions, and runner up in the EMEA region, as well as runner up in the Banking and Financial Services Innovation category for the Americas.
“It’s a tremendous honor to have been shortlisted for two prestigious 2018 FEM EMMA awards, and we’re greatly looking forward to the ceremony in San Diego in May.” – Greg Dewald, Bright!Tax CEO
Our success was thanks to our having introduced a number of industry first innovations, including a proprietary secure online client organizer and a mobile app, both created to improve and enhance the experience of filing US taxes from overseas.
Rather than rest on our laurels though, we’ve continued to innovate and streamline the process, introducing a number of new innovations this year that have resulted in new nominations for the 2018 awards.
The 2018 EMMA awards ceremony will take place at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort Hotel in San Diego on Thursday 24th May, at a gala black tie event following a two day Global Mobility summit and conference.
Lifelong, multiple award-winning entrepreneur Greg Dewald founded Bright!Tax after moving abroad himself and discovering how complex filing US taxes from abroad was.
Fast forward just a few years, and the firm has grown exponentially, and is now the stand-out leader and innovator in the field, with clients in over 190 countries worldwide.
Dewald says: “It’s a tremendous honor to have been shortlisted for two prestigious 2018 FEM EMMA awards, and we’re greatly looking forward to the ceremony in San Diego in May. I would like to thank FEM awards committee for nominating us as finalists, and also pay tribute to our dedicated and talented team, as well as to all of our expat clients around the world, whose stories and pioneering valor continually inspire us to greater innovation.”
Bright!Tax offers a full range of tax services for US expats, including federal and state tax return and FBAR filing, FATCA compliance, and penalty-free catching up with previous years’ returns with the Streamlined Procedure IRS amnesty program.
