We have worked with HLB members for more than 10 years now. We have relationships
with firms HLB Spain, HLB Italy, HLB France, HLB Germany and HLB Ireland.
We’ve engaged the HLB firms to help us with a number of services. These have included setting up the entity, establishing bank and insurances, hiring, labour contracts, accounting, year-end closing according to US retail calendar (5-4-4-), VAT and cooperate tax filing (in conjunction with Deloitte for US-GAAP) and all the other administrative stuff to run a stores, outlets and wholesale in these markets. With HLB Germany we established an entity which allowed us to do Ecommerce all over Europe. We test the shipping and return process with the help of HLB firms in 17 European countries. HLB member firms have helped us with all the administrative stuff to set up and run stores, outlets, wholesale and Ecommerce.
They have always been prompt, reliable, friendly and all have partners with very good English. This is a great team for difficult and time critical projects!
