Mission: To educate, inform & serve
Canadians, expatriates, non-residents and immigrants of Canada,
minimizing their Canadian income taxes & professional fees...
"During an intensive period of time, our company expatriated a large number of employees, contractors and secondees to overseas operations. Rob was the key tax expert in setting our tax equalization policy, providing interpretation of Canadian (and in some cases, foreign) tax rules and acting as a tax advisor to potential expatriates from Canada
Rob proved himself to be very thorough & efficient in all of the above functions. His projections & calculations stood many tests and, most importantly, he demonstrated excellent interpersonal skills in articulating good tax advice to his 'clients'.
I would unequivocally recommend Rob McDonald to any organization or individual who requires tax expertise on the expatriation or repatriation of a Canadian resident."

"Rob McDonald handled my Canadian tax affairs expertly after my 14 month assignment in Britain. I highly recommend Rob as a tax consultant for any Canadian working, or contemplating working abroad."
Mr. Richard Esau
Senior Software Consultant
GEOQUEST, A DIVISION OF SCHLUMBERGER CANADA LTD.
"Most Canadians on an international assignment will have stories about tax planning 'that should have been done'. Typically, these experiences are as a result of what 'someone thought' the Canadian tax laws meant. The services provided by Rob McDonald are professional and at a level that you can understand."

"Robert McDonald has proven invaluable in establishing a fair, workable and efficient personal taxation policy for personnel abroad. He is able to recognize the pressing needs of a small company and derive a system where the interests of the company and the employees are addressed. In addition to vast personal knowledge of the Canadian tax system, Rob has valuable information sources and personal contacts in numerous jurisdictions. I have no hesitation in giving Rob my full recommendation in international tax matters."

"Mr. McDonald carried out all duties in a thorough manner with a high level of competency. Both staff & management found him to be co-operative, knowledgeable, clear and concise in all areas of communication.
I would not hesitate to recommend Rob McDonald to any organization or individual who requires tax expertise pertaining to the expatriation or repatriation of Canadian residents."
Mr. Foster S. Wright
Manager of Corporate Accounting
HUGHES AIRCRAFT OF CANADA LTD.
"Unlike other consultants, Rob has a knack for making complicated issues simple and easily understandable. This is not only my personal feeling but that of other Canadian expats as well. Accordingly, tax issues arising in discussions among expats are always put forward to Rob for his opinion and we all rely on his sound judgment.
Trying to discuss issues in a different time zone is difficult but Rob is always prompt in his replies. So when Rob told me that he is planning to start out on his own, I volunteered to write this letter not only to express my sincere appreciation for the fine work which he has done but also to recommend him to anyone who may be needing his services. I am sure they will be as gratified as I have been."
