Aug 3, 2016

(Charlotte, N.C.) – Macy Xie and John Sciascia, both CPAs and tax managers at GreerWalker, have received an International Bureau of Fiscal Documentation (IBFD) Advanced Professional Certificate in International Taxation that recognizes them globally for their expertise in this practice area.

IBFD has been called the world’s foremost authority on cross-border taxation. Tax practitioners worldwide rely on its high-quality, independent research. Those who complete the 12-month structured IBFD training program in international taxation study aspects that include principles in tax treaties, transfer pricing and corporate tax restructuring; learn the current debate in international taxation; and learn to apply these concepts to issues in practice.

International tax expertise has never had more relevance in Charlotte. According to the most recent statistics provided by the Charlotte Chamber, the region has 918 foreign-owned companies representing 46 countries. GreerWalker is a member firm of Allinial Global, an association of legally independent accounting and consulting firms with offices in North America and throughout the world via international members and partnerships.

“Global business is an integral and growing practice area for our firm,” said John Norman, GreerWalker CPA and partner who is responsible for the firm’s global services as well as its manufacturing and distribution practice. “Our international clients will benefit from Macy’s and John’s IBFD designation and expertise as we navigate the labyrinth of constantly changing tax issues and regulations.”
