A business is defined by the value it creates for its clients; your price speaks volumes about your value proposition. An overwhelming majority of professional firms price their services by the flawed and outdated hourly billing method rather than realizing clients do not buy time; they buy value.

Price is the marketing moment of truth and the number one driver of profitability in any business. Learn how to price on purpose.

Webcast: International Tax Lunch: Inbound Executives of Foreign Corporations

You need to plan for the transition from nonresident to resident (with different rules for income tax and estate/gift tax), a period of years while the individual is a U.S. resident, followed by an expected return to nonresident status.

Identifying the issues early helps you to minimize tax costs and U.S. tax compliance costs. This session will walk you through the questions that come up—and how to address them—when a foreign executive or other individual comes to the United States as a long-term but temporary resident.
