Tax, Accounting & Audit

Tax legislation has become even more complex across the world, and many businesses are unclear about the full extent of their accounting and tax obligations. AGA offers carefully selected accounting and tax specialists in over 300 cities who will be your Single Point of Contact to coordinate your affairs and ensure compliance. You will be able to see your financial information in English and in real-time, for all of your group's subsidiaries across the world.

Tax registration

When you set up in a new jurisdiction and start trading or employing staff, when and how you must register with local tax authorities differs across the world. Our local tax experts will guide you to ensure there are no nasty surprises. 

Corporation tax

Expanding internationally requires careful planning to mitigate multiple layers of tax. We will help you to strategically manage corporate taxation, taking into account key factors such as your business structure and creation of a taxable presence.

Withholding tax & specialist local tax

Most countries require a business paying interest, royalties or dividends to consider if tax should be withheld from that payment being made which is then remitted to the local tax authority of the paying country. Some countries have extra requirements such as withholding tax on invoices when paid. Various reliefs and double tax treaties must be considered in this assessment. How each jurisdiction applies withholding tax (or other specialist local taxes) or the reliefs available vary not only by country but also based on the other countries involved. We work together to ensure you have the full picture and do not miss making a deduction and creating a liability for yourself, ensuring these taxes do n’ot get in the way of your business moving forward.

VAT & sales tax

VAT, sales tax and GST rules vary from country to country (including across the EU) and even from state to state in the same country. We will guide you on whether you need to charge these taxes and advise on tax relief and how to recover taxes paid. As an international alliance, we will ensure naturally that advice is joined up from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. 

Tax planning

Growing your business internationally necessitates smart tax planning from the very start. We will plan your tax affairs from start-up, to growth acquisitions to exit, providing advice for the business, your employees and your owners. From country to country, we will coordinate the most efficient tax structures as well as any tax reliefs, grants and incentives. 

Personal income tax

We take away the worry of ensuring personal tax compliance, handling the completion and filing of any tax returns.  If your business owners or staff are being transferred to a different jurisdiction or are self-relocating, our expatriate tax experts will help them with every step of their transition, including arrival and departure tax briefings, filing necessary employment and tax forms, and understanding their paycheck.

Bank account setup assistance

Setting up bank accounts can be challenging in some countries! We enjoy strong relationships with local banks that you will benefit from. 


We will manage your financials using your financial system of choice across the globe, whether that means Xero, QuickBooks, SAP, NetSuite, Intuit, Sage, Microsoft Dynamics or something else.

Management accounts

Management accounts are essential to taking proactive strategic decisions that will drive business growth in a country and across the world. With experts in 300 cities worldwide, we will provide the management accounts, P&L and balance sheet you need on a monthly or quarterly basis. When needed, a Lead Engagement Partner will take responsibility for cross-border consolidation with local AGA counterparts.

In today's business world, it is critical to business growth and sustainability that your finances are visible, consistent and comparable.

Statutory audit (IFRS & GAAP)

Whether legally required or not in a country, a regular audit provides credibility for your financial statements, gives your stakeholders confidence, and boosts your success when seeking capital injections. We will help your business to ensure regulatory compliance on a local and global basis. 

M&A financial due diligence

AGA professionals will help you determine if you’ve found the right fit, guiding you skilfully through the M&A process.
