International Business Services

Results Through Knowledge

Unfortunately, there’s no universal  way to do business. From unfamiliar financial reporting standards, to language and cultural barriers, operating internationally presents unique challenges. But Clark Schaefer Hackett offers something that does cross borders — it’s called remarkable relationships, and it’s a language we speak fluently.

We believe better relationships produce better results, so we train our professionals to deliver highly-valued client experiences. And it shows. Our client satisfaction ratings are 45% higher than the industry average.*

We’ve been serving businesses with international interests for more than 25 years and we offer all the sophisticated services you expect from a top CPA and advisory firm — but it’s our service style that sets us apart. We’re proactive with our guidance, respond promptly and truly care about your success.

Just as no two countries are alike, the same can be said about CPA firms. Across borders or across town, together we’ll achieve results through remarkable relationships.
