As an international tax advisor, Sue helps businesses structure their operations globally to mitigate tax costs and maximize profits.

What is your area of focus?

I work with clients on international tax solutions, working collaboratively with accounting and tax specialists around the globe through our affiliation with PrimeGlobal. I appreciate the challenges and opportunities involved with developing the types of international tax strategies which allow companies to maximize centers of profit and growth. With growing domestic competition, Clayton & McKervey has observed a definite cost/benefit for our clients doing business overseas, and capitalizing on new and developing markets. I lead a team that works directly with these types of business owners, providing recommendations on how to best structure operations globally to mitigate tax costs.

How long have you been at Clayton & McKervey?

Since 1997

What is the favorite part about your job?

I enjoy navigating the complexities of the ever-changing tax specialty, and watching businesses expand through an understanding of international tax.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act created a deduction for Foreign-Derived Intangible Income (FDII). The name of this deduction is misleading, it is actually a deduction against qualifying export income after a routine rate of return.
