Case Study

PIASCIK Flies. Company Soars.

A leading New York City firm called PIASCIK with an international opportunity that required an immediate response. A business venture had become apparent, and they needed a business representative from PIASCIK to meet them in Italy in only five days. PIASCIK not only sent one of the firm's local Italian business representatives to meet with the company, but also structured the business venture more efficiently than the New York firm had proposed. What's more, the New York firm had no idea that their original structure would not allow many of current tax privileges currently granted under that county's tax treaties. The result? Our efforts yielded hundreds of thousands of dollars in tax savings and penalties. And a very appreciative client.
