"One of our best customers in Brazil is a Norwegian high tech company in the Maritime, Oil & Gas and Defense segments, operating out of 25 countries and listed in the Oslo Stock Exchange. The Brazilian subsidiary of this company was sending Brazilian technicians for training in Korea, and needed desperately to understand the tax consequences of their permanence in the Country.
We gave our opinion, but recommended them to check with their Korean tax expert. The customer then asked if we could help with that, and the answer was 'yes'! Our friends at Serim Accounting Corporation (Korea) were extremely helpful, exchanging several emails before even mentioning any commercial terms. Customer was very happy with the assistance and us with having someone we can trust in Korea."
"TIAG led us to the US subsidiary of a Canadian company offering online concierge services that opened an office in Boston. We became their US firm for tax.
When TIAG sent an email asking US firms about a Russian speaking CPA, we were able to step forward. The result is an active proposal for new work with a Russian company with operations in Washington DC. We are hopeful that an in-person meeting will occur in early 2013.

"In our opinion, the main benefit of TIAG membership is to no longer be a regional company, but instead part of a multinational professional accounting alliance in which we can now offer knowledge from TIAG members around the world to our customers."
