KPMG's US tax team in Singapore helps companies, funds, and individuals with operations and investments in the United States navigate potential tax issues and compliance requirements. Our services also extend to persons who could potentially be subject to US taxes, as the country's international tax net reaches beyond the borders of the US.

Our team includes experts that have practised as US tax lawyers at international law firms in the US. Additionally, because we are part of the KPMG US, we have the most up-to-date US tax resources available.
