We are solution providers.

With more than 30 years of experience, Pamela Wayer is a deeply knowledgeable CPA and relationship-oriented team leader. In addition to developing, training and mentoring staff, she provides comprehensive, proactive tax planning and tax compliance services for high net worth individuals, expatriates and non-residents, and private business owner clients. Pamela’s specialties include individual income tax, trust tax, family partnership tax reporting, gift and estate tax, private foundations, FBAR and FATCA reporting and domestic payroll.
