Taxes are complicated, especially for foreigners doing business in the U.S. We’ve got your back.

Cleer Tax specializes in helping startups get—and stay— tax compliant, with the experience you need and prices that won’t break the bank.

As the owner of a startup, you need to ensure your startup tax filing is completed each year, regardless of whether you sold anything (or not) or made any money (or even lost some!).

Failure to file can lead to hefty penalties — even more so if your business is foreign-owned. In addition to a standard 1120, you’ll also potentially need to fill out even more complicated forms such as the 5472 or 5471. 

This is where Cleer Tax comes in! We can not only advise you on your startup tax filing requirements, but also file in a way that genuinely takes into account your business’s unique needs. 

Our services cater to entrepreneurs with newly formed companies and can grow as your business grows. We offer specialized support for those with international backgrounds, who often are not well-versed in the U.S. tax system.

Cleer Tax supports all types of companies or subsidiaries with their startup tax filing compliance
