Here are examples of how LEA Global has helped companies like yours
A middle market company began doing business internationally, but was hesitant to aggressively pursue opportunities in countries where the executives didn’t have contacts. Intimidated by the unknown, the company worked with its LEA Global firm to build the bridge, gaining local familiarity through LEA Global’s connections to accounting and banking contacts as well as attorneys. The new relationships also helped the company cut through all the red tape involved in crossing borders.
When a company with subsidiaries around the world sought to outsource its tax function, it considered an LEA Global firm and a Big 4 firm. The LEA Global firm coordinated the proposal with fellow LEA member firms located where the company’s subsidiaries were. After reviewing both proposals, the company determined its complete global outsourcing solution should be provided by the LEA Global firm.
A U.S.-based gear box manufacturer operates facilities in multiple countries. At one of its smaller operations in Europe, the manufacturer used a management agency to take care of payroll, invoicing, collections and payables. When the manufacturer mentioned this to its LEA Global firm, it was connected with the LEA Dutch affiliate, which ultimately provided the same services for approximately half the cost.
