Happy Thanksgiving from the Team at Bright!Tax!
The entire Bright!Tax team wishes you a very Happy Holiday Season as we enter 2019!
We wish to thank you for choosing us to prepare your US tax return this year. While we firmly believe that we are the best at US expat tax preparation, we know that you have a choice and we hope that your experience working with us this year proved not only smooth but also satisfying, and even enjoyable, and we look forward to welcoming you back again next year.
It’s been an incredible year for Bright!Tax. The firm is continuing to grow exponentially, thanks to our focus on making the process of filing US taxes from abroad as effortless as possible for you, our valued clients. Your ease and peace of mind are at the heart of every decision we make as a firm.
As we work towards this goal, we are constantly seeking to introduce new innovations, and this year we have enhanced our secure online Client Organizer and developed partnerships with reputable other organizations that can offer additional value to you.
A great example is our partnership with the UNFCU, which allows our expat clients to apply for banking services wherever in the world they live, as many expats have reported to us that they have experienced difficulties or been made to jump through numerous hoops to open an account at their local foreign banks.
We are also deeply thankful for the continued wider recognition that we’ve received this year following our success in 2017, most recently earlier this month at the prestigious London FEM EMMA awards, when we received the Highly Commended gong in the Expat Tax Provider of the Year category.
“We are thrilled to be honored once again – for the fifth time – at the Forum of Expat Management’s 2018 London EMMA awards. We would like to thank the judges, but more importantly our clients for choosing us and who inspire us to keep on striving for perfection”
– Greg Dewald, Bright!Tax CEO
The other firms recognized in our category were corporate tax and payroll providers, so with a very different focus, and we are proud to once again be recognized over our competitors who were also shortlisted for the award.
This year also saw the Trump Tax Reform come into effect, and while many expats weren’t affected, many of those with foreign registered businesses were caught up in the wider so-called ‘Apple Tax’ net. As the entire expat tax prep industry rushed to discern the best way forward for these expats affected by the new rules, we kept our calm and in partnership with leading expat specialist tax attorneys delivered what we believe to be the most tax efficient strategy going forward.
One of the reasons that we are consistently receiving recognition for delivering a superior service compared to our competitors is thanks to our internal organizational structure.
Rather than allocate a single, often over-burdened tax professional to each client, our tax professionals work in teams. This means that every tax return that we prepare is checked by not one, or even two, but by three expat-expert tax professionals for accuracy. It’s a Triple Check Protection that no other firm offers.
So as the days grow shorter once more (or longer, for those expats living in the Southern Hemisphere), and the festive season nears, thank you for choosing Bright!Tax. We have much to be thankful for, and we hope that you do too. Have a very happy Thanksgiving!
