Foreign-Account Holders may face double trouble. Not all are aware that non-bank offshore assets must be reported to Treasury as well as IRS

  Anja Luesink, a New York City-based certified financial planner, believes that most advisors can adequately handle expat clients on their own if they create the right network and don’t extend themselves to jurisdictions beyond their knowledge and comfort zone.

Luesink has a number of foreign national clients from her native Holland who live in the U.S. “I try to attract clients from there because I’m aware of their circumstances,” she says. She also has foreign national clients from Canada and Great Britain. She says she’s built a network of specialists in those countries, such as tax advisors who are familiar with local tax issues.

“I wouldn’t take on clients in places I’m not familiar with, such as Mexico,” Luesink says. “You have to be very careful or you’ll make mistakes. But who else will do it? You have to start somewhere to build expertise.”
