Tax is a fundamental aspect of most business transactions and individual estate plans. Tax laws are complex, ever-changing and difficult to maneuver. While for most clients, the end goal is rarely tax-related, a successful outcome is often tax-dependent. As such, Areet helps individuals, businesses and tax-exempt entities plan for the future and achieve their goals while identifying and managing the tax risks.
Areet works with clients across a variety of industries, including real estate development, health and educational institutions, technology and manufacturing companies as well as charities and not-for-profit organizations.
An analytical and detail-oriented nature makes Areet a natural fit for a practice in tax.
