Scott A. Goffstein & Associates has developed a unique degree of expertise in a number of areas, notably working with start-ups and dealing with a variety of international accounting issues.
Special Services for Start-Ups
Scott A. Goffstein & Associates is unique in that we offer our
clients a wide choice of services depending on their stage of development.
For start-ups just out of the gate, we can do it all from payroll
to accounts payable to sales taxes to monthly or quarterly reports.
In effect, you can outsource your financial and accounting functions
to us as you concentrate on getting your company off the ground.
Then, as your company grows, our services can be adjusted to meet
a different set of needs. We currently have a number of clients
- many of them internationally-based - who rely on us for monthly
support. Some monthly clients send us an electronic file;
we review it to be sure it's all in accordance with generally accepted
accounting principles; and we then send back the file. For
others, we provide on-site assistance. For all clients, we
can quickly respond to peak periods and offer support as needed.
Our International Expertise
International companies present a unique set of accounting challenges
stemming from cross-border taxation issues and unique regulations
in each country. Our expertise in this area is extensive.
We regularly deal with tax treaty issues, transfer pricing problems,
intercompany issues, and, of course, questions of how the IRS tax
code impacts international transactions.
As always, we rely on a combination of our collective knowledge
of accounting principles and tax regulations, our experience working
on similar questions for others, and our own good judgment to help
you navigate the often shifting currents of international accounting.
