Alan Griffith from Marcum: Spurred by the information technology (IT) revolution, trade liberalization and other economic reforms, the size of the global economy doubled. Technological changes have reduced the costs of communication and transportation, and a reduction of trade barriers. Businesses going international must make the investment in technology or be left behind.

What are the most common recommendations you have made to your clients to help them grow their business overseas?

Alan Griffith from Marcum: Key elements for U. S.-based businesses to succeed with their out-bound business investment include: (a) The right "structure" {the choice of legal entities in the U.S. and offshore); (b) The right "location" (the proper foreign jurisdiction to operate in); (c) Avoiding "double tax" (where the same income is subject to U.S. tax and foreign tax without the benefit of foreign tax credits) ; (d) Foster a healthy skepticism of the "cocktail party" advisor (i .e., it sounds too good to be true... ); and (e) "Size matters" (larger companies possess the resources to take advantage of "tax haven" strategies that are simply "out of reach" for middle-market businesses.
