International Business Services

Presenting a wider view of the world

International Business Services

There are cultural differences, language barriers, and currency exchanges – and that’s before we even talk about transfer pricing and IFRS. But there is also opportunity. If the world is on your doorstep, would you like a helping hand?

Our dedicated International Business Services Group provides planning and consulting to companies who do business overseas, enjoy resources produced by foreign markets, or have facilities in other countries. They also address the unique accounting needs of American subsidiaries of foreign parent companies, and the individual expatriates who make up their workforce. Our solutions are focused toward the needs and budgets of middle-market organizations and delivered by a local international team with direct experience serving clients just like you.

Where in the world is CSH?

Our international reach is extensive. At Clark Schaefer Hackett our services are designed for middle-market companies looking for a firm with depth, expertise, and the benefits of membership with AGN International.

Over 20 years ago we recognized that globalization was going to be the defining issue for a generation of American companies. As a result, CSH was one of the founding firms of AGN International (“AGN”), a worldwide association of separate and independent accounting and consulting firms. Today our shareholders remain actively involved in leadership of AGN.



  • Represented in 92 countries
  • 200 member firms
  • 468 offices
  • 10,700 partners & staff

AGN has rigorous criteria for admittance – only the top accounting firms are accepted. We all use a common methodology in providing clients with solutions.

“AGN is ranked as the 5th largest accounting association in the world.”
