Bina has significant experience advising clients across many industries on complex tax, social security, compliance, and payroll issues.  She also has notable expertise in advising on cross-border planning, liaising as appropriate with clients’ internal HR, finance and payroll functions.

Jim and Bina will work with ex-BDO Expatriate Tax Director and existing Senior International Assignments Consultant, Andrea Plaw as well as our employment, immigration and compensation specialists.  Internationally our Correspondent Firms, chosen to mirror our multi-disciplinary approach to people focussed legal services, offer clients the international reach they seek.

Guy Abbiss commented:  "With experts of the calibre of Bina, Jim and Andrea on board, we are able to offer our clients a first class comprehensive international assignments service.   In a market dominated by the large accountancy practices we are already winning significant instructions from major corporate clients based upon the quality of our service alone.  We see the fact that our costs compare favourably as an added bonus for the client.”
