    Hi Solo Flyers,

    We are in need of help – we need an accountant with specialist knowledge.

    What we have: An ECommerce store that operates from a virtual office address in the US and transactions are received in $USD – we cannot change this to AUD without causing negative impact to our purchase conversion rate and/or cashflow.

    What we need: An accountant who has detailed knowledge of Australian and US Tax laws (State to State).

    We need options and help choosing/setting a business structure (either a US based LLC or an Australian Pty Ltd). We want to tell you the details and barriers we face, and our growth plan, and need help crunching the numbers and deciding which is the option that makes the most economic sense over the long term.

    This would just be the beginning – we would hope to maintain a long business advice/tax relationship with this accountant as we scale the business. As you can tell we are very serious about growing this business, and with the right advice we have the capacity to do it quickly, so only serious offers and the people who can definitely help us will be considered.

    We also are part of a community of people in Australia who have similar businesses and are facing the same problem so we will happily recommend anyone who can help us. We are in Brisbane – hoping to have someone local/Skype, but may be willing to travel.

    Sorry if this sounds like a job advertisement – we are just in genuine need of a great accountant to help us.

    Recommendations and private messages welcome – also we are new to FlyingSolo so forgive us if we aren’t familiar with messaging systems etc.

    Thanks to all those who reply.

    Your post has some mixed messages.

    If you would care to send me a personal post through this website then I and my colleagues might be able to offer you some options in this familiar area.

    The more detail you provide the quicker the possibility of a potential solution.

    Hi Warren,

    My name is Laura. The business is my partner’s but he has asked me to look into all this because I’m better with the strategic financial and legal planning – I work for the government.
    He has done internet marketing as a hobby for probably close to a decade – everything from traffic to info products to affiliate to selling on eBay. This business that has suddenly gone from hobby income to proper consistent income is drop shipping. Forgive me if I don’t give up all the details – I’m very skeptical about a lot of the less tangible aspects of Internet marketing and from the community I mentioned I know many people are looking to copy other people’s business and niches. Also, at the end of the day it’s his call not mine what to share with people.

    Also for transparency, I’ve posted on other forums too – have had a few responses from chartered accountant firms but we are keeping our options open. We aren’t looking for any free advice. We want to do this legitimately through registered accountants and channels.

    Laura.

    Hi Laura

    If you care to give me your email address in the private Conversations section here, I’ll copy you into an email to the chap I mentioned introducing the two of you to each other.
