How we work

Almost everything starts with a chat. You let us know what you are looking for and we organise a chat with a suitably qualified person. Click the button below to book your initial chat. That chat helps us identify your needs and whether we can help you directly or through our associated companies or business partners.

If you need tax advice, it is given by an associated company which is registered with the Financial Services Authority on the Isle of Man as a Designated Business Person. If one of our business partners can provide a service you need, we will refer you to them. For example, most tax advisors in the Isle of Man do not give US tax advice. Where you need US tax advice, we refer it to our US tax advisors who are based in Florida.
