LEA Global, an international professional association of accounting firms, recently announced the winners of its prestigious Edge Awards for 2014 at its global conference in Montreal.
Each award area illustrates LEA’s core belief that continuing success is grounded in being accomplished in all areas of practice development and firm management. Each of LEA’s highly competitive awards is inspired by the cutting-edge innovations and best practices that differentiate LEA members from their competitors. Firms across the country and around the globe use LEA’s winning programs as models for their own programs.
This year’s award winners are:
2014 Outstanding Community Service
Philip Stein & Associatesof Israel for seeking a deeper commitment and additional opportunities to serve its community. It implemented a “1-1-1” model, whereby it commits 1 percent of firm revenue, 1 percent of employee time and 1 percent of firm services to its community. The beneficiaries of its efforts, chosen with staff input, include a food rescue network, a food bank, infants and seniors with no families, and assistance to refugees and immigrants. In addition, the firm invites clients to join its efforts by matching every dollar they donate to its designated charitable organizations.
Henry & Horne, LLPof Arizona for creating a committee to streamline community service efforts and increase firm wide visibility by participating in monthly public service events. While participating in community philanthropic events on an ongoing basis, the firm also hosted its own public service event by closing all of its offices for a day so all staff could work on beautifying a client’s campus. Information about the firm’s community service activities is included on its website, proposals and social media. Beneficiaries included organizations that address hunger, animal care, cancer care and underprivileged children.
2014 Innovative Firm — EKS&H LLLP, Denver

Long recognized in the accounting profession for its outstanding leadership, commitment to its people, community service and growth and profitability, this firm is honored regularly as an outstanding workplace.
2014 Innovative Firm Leader — David Katri of Clark Nuber P.S., Seattle
In his 14 years leading the firm, Katri has created a one-firm mindset throughout the organization, helped triple its growth, created a nationally recognized workplace culture of excellence that stays on the forefront of technology and that has nurtured a small independent firm into one that is broadly recognized as one of the most respected and profitable in the business.
2014 Innovative Firm Initiative — Adams, Brown, Beran & Ball, CHTD., Kansas
Adams, Brown, Beran & Ball successfully tackled seasonal tax return issues that plague many accounting firms. It figured out a way to match the appropriate level of complexity with team members’ skills sets while ensuring productivity and even workloads through many offices. This firm created a remarkably effective system for grading the complexity of each tax return and leveraged technology to assign the returns to a pool that staff can draw from, regardless of their location. The result was a process that significantly increased efficiency for the firm, increased job satisfaction for staff members and considerably increased profitability. This process bolstered realization and earnings per hour while reducing average time to complete a return. The system was designed by a task force, allowing stakeholders to have a voice in the process, which can be easily adapted and replicated by other firms.
2014 On the Edge Innovation — Dezan Shira & Associates, Asia
This award historically has gone to an individual, but for the first time, it was awarded to an organization. The scope and accomplishments of Dezan Shira & Associates are so innovative and nontraditional, and the opportunities it provides its clients and other LEA firms are so unique, that the judges decided it merited special recognition for its outstanding innovation. This unique organization truly can provide a spread of local, Asian and global expertise — from advising on country operational comparisons, to advising on strategic use of bilateral and multilateral tax and free trade agreements, to treasury and payroll management structures. At a local level, this specialized foreign direct investment practice provides a range of financial, tax, audit, investment and accounting-related services to multinationals investing in the countries it operates in. It has grown into a nimble and versatile full-service consultancy, with operational offices and alliances across Asia.
These two leaders have made outstanding contributions to their firms, their clients, their communities, LEA and the profession over long and notable careers. They have substantial track records of innovation within their firms and serve as role models of leadership to others by empowering their people, creating innovative strategies of profitability and growth, and engineering and sharing best practices throughout their firms and with their peers.
2014 Emerging Markets — PKF Texas, Houston
This firm recognized the often-overlooked opportunity among women entrepreneurs and executives and is acting on it. It implemented a firm wide strategy to appeal to women-owned businesses and the billions of dollars in revenue their enterprises represent. It is also applying these strategies to developing its own internal women’s leadership programs. Integral to this initiative is its three-pronged approach: championing women in business, demonstrating its unparalleled qualification to serve women business owners and promoting an array of services for women-owned businesses.
2014 Outstanding Marketing Initiative
- Brown Schultz Sheridan & Fritzof Pennsylvania for heroic efforts in overcoming obstacles to update its digital marketing efforts by using old-fashioned research and collaboration with its IT department — and achieving excellent results, including a new client, four new prospects and 177 new contacts.
- Prosperity Advisers Group of Australia for exhibiting extraordinary efforts to capitalize on opportunities in the health care and Asia-Pacific markets. To launch its entry into the health care market, it strategically targeted new physicians and signed 90 new clients at an orientation program for them. Its efforts to capitalize on its market as an Asian investment entry point and to facilitate efforts by wealthy Chinese families to diversify their assets into Western countries has, to date, generated more than $170,000 in new client fees.
- Vandelanotte of Belgium for solving the lack of cross-promoting the services it offers. Its solution? An innovative and charming cocktail-inspired branding campaign featuring interdepartmental competitions, cocktail shaker sets as promotional items to clients and prospects, and a renowned bartender as the face of the firm on its website, mailers, billboards, bumper stickers and other advertising collaterals.
2014 Cultural Innovation — Lutz & Company, PC,Nebraska
When this firm sought ways to unite its rapidly expanding staff and service lines, it created nine teams across all service lines and staff levels and had them compete in challenges that focused on the firm’s core values and brand. Through these team-based activities, team members visited more than 30 clients and 30 prospects, raised more than $18,000 in scholarship money and bonded with each other through pranks, social events and group celebrations.
2014 HR Innovation — Clark Nuber P.S., Seattle
This firm realized that the lack of a tight and organized on-boarding program for experienced hires presented the potential for lost opportunities and increased turnover. It re-engineered its on-boarding system for experienced hires to ensure that, from their very first day, they receive a warm welcome, are excited to start work, understand their roles and performance expectations are familiar with the firm’s values and goals and begin their new jobs with excitement. The expansive new system includes an emailed offer package that includes new hire agreements and benefits information before they begin work; a mentor program; day one welcome materials such as nameplates, business cards and information about upcoming projects awaiting them on their first day on the job; and a systemized orientation program that includes conversations with HR, the partner in charge of their service group, the manager of learning and development and the CEO. The intensive new process is generating rave reviews from new hires and reducing the administrative burden on HR staff, and based on current data, has the potential to reduce turnover by nearly two-thirds.
2014 Internal Technology Innovation — Gesdocument y Gestión, S.A. of Spain
This firm created a complex technological solution that resulted in simple and reliable application by the end-user, creating a technological innovation that can be accessed anywhere and that uses a variety of cloud-based best practices.

The IRS has announced a new streamlined program making it much easier for people who are not in compliance or have never filed to come into compliance. The streamlined program was originally developed in 2012 to allow taxpayers who were unintentionally non-compliant with US reporting obligations to “come clean” in a manner that protected them from various penalties. The old program was found to be too constrictive allowing only non-residents who had low amounts of tax due. This program, which expands upon the success of the 2012 program, has been modified to include the following new additions:
- Both non-residents (people living abroad) and US residents can qualify
- Taxpayers can enter the program regardless of the amount of tax due
- People who have filed returns in the past but left off foreign income, can now qualify
- Elimination of the risk questionnaire
- A requirement for all taxpayers to sign a statement certifying that their failure to file was due to non-willful conduct
A taxpayer who complies with this program will not be subject to numerous penalties including failure to file, failure to pay, accuracy related penalties, information return penalties and FBAR penalties. Now is the time for US citizens living abroad, and US residents with income over seas, to easily become tax compliant. Please make an appointment with our office so we can figure out how to best maximize these new programs to suit your individual situation. You are welcome to contact Fred, email@example.com

The last few years have been an exciting time in the activity of United States tax law development. Many opportunities developed which helped taxpayers save on their tax bills to the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”). Presently, the excitement is not to subside, but for many taxpayers may even increase in a way that is different from before.
Although American tax law concepts generally do not change significantly from year to year, they have continued to evolve since the basic current system began. More special laws were enacted over the last few years. Many of these laws both were set in place under the administration of former President George W. Bush, and have favored the side of taxpayers. A few examples have been reduced tax rates, as well as a variety of new deductions, and tax credits. Over the last few years, we have seen that many of these new rules have made the tax picture increasingly pleasant for taxpayers. However, many of these special opportunities for taxpayers did not permanently change the tax law, as they would only apply for certain number of years. Last year, for example, many of these laws were scheduled to sunset (expire). In this situation, those areas of laws would return to how they were prior to the way before G.W. Bush was in office unless U.S. Congress otherwise would enact new legislation to extend the laws. Up until now, the taxpayer-friendly laws were extended.
In the current phase of the administration under President Barack Obama, many predict that the laws that can potentially sunset will do so. As we prepare, we must consider that under the prediction, taxpayers have one-time special opportunities that must be taken soon, by 2012 year end. Preparations to consider are primarily in two areas – 1) income tax and 2) estate planning, including both gift and estate taxes.
A significant expected change in income tax is that the marginal tax rate, which is currently at 35%, would rise back to 39.6%, but there are many others. The recent concept of qualified dividends, which has allowed most dividends to be taxed like capital gains at a maximum mere 15% rate in recent years, would disappear, and all dividends would once again be taxed as ordinary income – again, at a rate potentially as high as 39.6% for higher income taxpayers. Long-term capital gains, which have enjoyed the same maximum 15% tax rate as qualified dividends as said above, would have their tax rate increase back to 20%.
There have also been some other new laws. The Medicare tax will increase for high income taxpayers to 3.8%. Under this tax increase, the Medicare tax incurred by wages and business income, and investment income is in effect subject to a completely new tax.
Because of these and other changes, it may make sense to try to accelerate income so that more is taxable in 2012 instead of in 2013 and the other years to come. Although the method to accomplish this may incur various options, depending on your situation, one effective option may be to make a Roth conversion of your traditional IRA. Please get in touch with our office as soon as possible, however, to discuss what options would be best for you.
In the gift and estate tax areas, there are two main changes predicted based on the scheduled sunset of temporary laws favorable to taxpayers, as mentioned above. The lifetime gift tax exemption and the estate tax exemption amount are probably the most significant, because these define which taxpayers are subject to the gift or estate tax at all. The estate tax exemption rose gradually from $675,000 in 2000 to $5,120,000 in 2012, significantly limiting the number of estates subject to the estate tax. The lifetime gift exemption rose from $675,000 in 2000 and 2001 to $1,000,000. It remained lower than the estate tax exemption, and the two were not “unified” for a number of years until 2011. For 2012, the lifetime gift tax exemption is $5,120,000. Due to the sunset of the previous legislation that temporarily brought both exemptions so high, both exemptions are scheduled to return to $1,000,000 in 2013. There are different predictions as to what will actually happen, though there are those that think that only the lifetime gift tax exemption will return to $1,000,000, but that the estate tax exemption will only drop to $3,500,000.
The second change is that the current marginal tax rate for gift and estate tax is 35%, but is scheduled to return to 55%, as it had been in 2001 and before. A third possible change involves a new concept called portability, introduced for 2011 and 2012. Portability, applicable to the estate tax, means that for a married couple, that if one member’s estate upon death of that spouse did not use their entire exemption, any remaining available exemption is passed to the estate of the surviving spouse. This meant that for 2011 and 2012, that each married couple could pass on a combine $10 million to their heirs without any tax consequences, and without any special estate planning. Although portability is scheduled to expire at the end of 2012, it is unknown whether legislation will extend this advantage into future years.
Given these likely changes, it may make sense for taxpayers with large amounts of assets to give away many of these assets to their future heirs before 2012 year end. When doing so, it is often better to give assets that are likely to appreciate, rather than cash. To discuss this tactic, as well as others in more detail, please be in touch with us in ample time before the end of 2012.

On June 26th 2012 the IRS made an announcement for US citizens who have been non compliant, that was an additional step away from “one size fits all”. Finally, on September 1st the IRS announced the details of this new proposal. The IRS seems to be offering a helping hand for “low risk” taxpayers who have not been filing tax returns or FBAR’s. The program will allow people to file only 3 years of tax returns and 6 years FBARs with no penalties imposed. The IRS is defining “low risk” taxpayers as those individuals who have “simple returns with little on no US tax due. Absent any high risk factors, if the submitted returns and application show less than $1,500 in tax due in each of the years, they will be treated as low risk and processed in a streamlined manner”.
Since there are many factors that could put you into a “high risk” category, one needs to be very cautious before choosing this simplified procedure. Something as seemingly innocent as amending a return, claiming a refund or having a bank account in a country other than Israel and the US takes you out of the low risk category. In addition, you have to answer a questionnaire and submit a reasonable cause statement explaining why you never filed.
We think this program is a step in the right direction but we recommend a review of all the facts before making the leap into the arms of the IRS. We are happy to meet to see if the program fits your profile.

ישראלים להם יש נכסים בארה”ב, עלולים להוריש לבניהם לא רק את הרכוש אלא גם את המיסים > פיליפ שטיין
בנג’מין פרנקלין אמר, כי “בעולם שום דבר אינו ודאי חוץ ממוות ומיסים”. מן הסתם, המת אינו נשאר בסביבה כדי לשלם מיסים, אך יורשיו יצטרכו לשלם אותם עבורו.
לאורך השנים צפיתי בתדהמתם של ישראלים המגלים שנכסיהם בארה”ב יהיו כפופים למסי עיזבון אמריקניים לאחר ה=120 שלהם. בעוד שאזרחי ארה”ב ותושביה פטורים ממיסים לגבי נכסים בשווי עד 5 מיליון דולר בעת המוות, מי שאינו תושב צריך לשלם מיסים על נכסים מסוימים ששוויים עולה על 60 אלף דולר בלבד. לא מדובר על מס הכנסה, אלא על מס המוערך לפי שווי הנכסים. טווח מס העיזבון הפדרלי הוא 18%=35%. בנוסף, יש במדינות רבות מסי עיזבון נוספים, שקצרה היריעה מלתאר את כולם במאמר זה.
בדרך כלל, ישראלים שאינם אזרחי ארה”ב צריכים לשלם מיסים רק על ערך נכסי ה”סיטוס” שלהם בארה”ב. מדובר ברכוש אישי ריאלי ומוחשי הנמצא בארה”ב ובמניות של תאגידים אמריקניים. הנכסים הנפוצים ביותר הנתונים למס עיזבון הם דירות, השקעות בנדל”ן, תיקי השקעות הקשורים למניות ארה”ב והשקעות בתאגידים אמריקניים כגון חברות סטארט=אפ.
יורשיו של ישראלי שבבעלותו בית בשיקגו בשווי של 500 אלף דולר, ייאלצו לשלם לאחר פטירתו מס פדרלי של 156 אלף דולר בעת מותו. זהו תחום מורכב ויש להתייעץ עם מומחה במקרים הרלוונטיים.

Moving from the US to Israel, one can note many things different and similar. In this article, I would like to describe the similarities and differences in the accounting profession. I will cover the qualifications and education required to become certified, the roles accountants play in the respective countries’ economies, as well as other non-CPA certifications found in the larger accounting ecosystem common to both the US and Israel is the designation of the Certified Public Accountant, but there are significant differences between whether one is a US or Israeli CPA.
A US CPA needs to complete five years of higher education and at a minimum, 8 accounting courses and 8 business courses. In addition to this, the CPA candidate needs to complete the full 4-part CPA exam. Israeli CPA students generally take a much more focused course load. They take 30 accounting classes, but pass out of sections of the CPA exam by virtue of their success in the relevant courses. Thus, the holder of an Israeli accounting degree need only take 2 parts of the original 15-part Israeli CPA exam.
US and Israeli CPAs fulfill different roles in their respective national economies. Both serve as controllers and financial officers for corporations. They keep track of and provide important financial data to managers, as well as to shareholders and government officials. However, in the United States, income tax accounting for individuals has a much greater role than it does in Israel. This is largely due to the vastly greater complexity of the US income tax system. In Israel, by contrast, every company both large and small is required to be audited by a CPA every year. This leads to a much greater focus on auditing skills among Israeli CPAs. The Israeli income tax system is simple enough that many individuals don’t need to file tax returns, as the tax is taken directly out of a worker’s paycheck.
Beside the familiar CPA designation, there are a variety of other accounting-related professional qualifications in both the US and Israel. Both countries have a specified tax advisor designation. In the US, it is called an Enrolled Agent. An Enrolled Agent is required to pass a comprehensive exam in tax matters and can basically do anything a CPA can in relation to tax matters. In Israel, this designation is called a Yoetz Mas, which translates to “tax advisor.” Certified bookkeepers are present in both the US and Israel, but in Israel they take on more responsibilities. Israeli bookkeepers often independently prepare financial statements, whereas this is something US bookkeepers often leave to their accountant supervisors.
The differences between the two types of CPAs represent not only different education and duties, but also different economic and regulatory approaches. Both designations take many years to achieve and require even more years to achieve mastery over the subject matter. A minority of accountants in Israel are both US and Israeli CPAs. At Philip Stein and Associates we are US tax specialists. And recognizing the importance of taking care of the client’s complete financial situation, we have a strategic partnership with many of the top Israeli CPA firms. Together, we strive to place our clients in the strongest possible position for regulatory compliance and tax efficiency in both the United States and Israel.
