Editor’s note: This is a sponsored post announcing Aprio LLP’s backing of Global Atlanta’s United Kingdom and Belgium coverage. Subscribe to our monthly U.K. and Belgium newsletters here.

Global Atlanta is pleased to announce that Aprio LLP has agreed to become the exclusive annual sponsor of all our United Kingdom and Belgium coverage, helping underpin our continued reporting on these vital countries for the city’s global engagement.

Aprio’s steadfast support will help our journalists surface informative and entertaining stories about the U.K. and Belgium all across the state, providing the kind of deep insight only possible through our ongoing editorial dedication to the topic and a more-than-30-year news archive.

These focus areas, which we call Channels, are highlighted in targeted monthly newsletters that supplement Global Atlanta’s ongoing Daily and Weekly newsletters highlighting the cities latest news, upcoming international events and open career opportunities.

We caught up with Yelena Epova, managing partner for Atlanta and international tax leader at Aprio, to learn more about the tax and advisory firm’s focus on these two countries and its international capabilities: 

Yelena Epova is heading up the Atlanta office of Aprio as managing partner and international practice leader.

Since 1952, clients throughout the U.S. and across more than 50 countries have trusted Aprio for guidance on how to achieve what’s next. As a premier business advisory and full-service CPA firm, Aprio delivers advisory, assurance, tax, outsourcing, staffing and private client services to build value, drive growth, manage risk and protect wealth. We serve individuals and businesses, from promising startups to market leaders alike. Our team members speak more than 30 languages and work with clients in over 50 countries.

On the local level, Aprio has helped companies relocate to Atlanta and currently represents numerous international companies that have a presence in the city, as well as individuals who have come from other countries.

Our team members are frequent speakers at various industry and local events, where we educate businesses and communities on tax and financial matters. We also sponsor and support many events in Atlanta’s international business community.

Aprio is looking to build relationships with executives and companies who are coming from Belgium and the U.K. and are interested in setting up a business or expanding their operations in the U.S. We have helped many Belgian and British companies establish their presence in the U.S. and look forward to helping more like-minded companies set up their business and support with further growth.

Our international team also travels frequently to Europe to meet clients and prospects and is available to meet companies in Belgium and the UK. In addition to helping with US expansion, we have a UK Research & Development (R&D) Tax practice where we assist companies with UK R&D activities benefitting from the R&D tax incentive.

Our team represents technology companies and calculates relevant tax credits for them in both countries. We are proud to be involved in various organizations that promote business between Belgium and the U.K. and are even planning a series of webinars to help British and Belgian companies navigate cross-border tax issues while relocating in the U.S.

Aprio’s other international services include:

  • Transfer pricing
  • Structuring businesses for worldwide tax efficiencies
  • Tax-efficient profit repatriation strategies
  • US federal tax compliance for companies and individuals
  • State & local tax consulting and compliance
  • Export tax incentives
  • Global mobility tax services
  • Multicurrency financial statement audits
  • IFRS, US GAAP and foreign GAAP conversion
  • Wealth management
  • R&D tax credits

We chose to sponsor a channel through Global Atlanta because we want to help more multinational businesses accomplish their growth goals. Global Atlanta is known for its extensive network of C-level executives, government officials and connections from companies looking to move to Georgia. At Aprio, we have a strong reputation and commitment to businesses in Atlanta with global and local reach. We would be honored to have the opportunity to support and sponsor other companies in search of professional, trusted advisors.
