Ghada Burton’s Professional Goals
While tax simplification remains the goal for many of our legislators. It is evident that this “noble” goal is far from today’s realities. Our tax laws remain the most complex in the world. Incidentally, other countries are taking notice and following the U.S. lead by enacting counter-regulations.
As a result, it is challenging for start-ups and pre-IPO companies to try to apply the tax laws without professional assistance. As well as, not wanting to run the risk of tax exposure which could result in substantial penalties. Ghada Burton remains focused on her goal to help guide her clients through the maze of the tax complexities. Either federal, state & local, as well as international.
Furthermore, Ms. Burton welcomes opportunities in the finance area to guide clients in risk management by setting up hedging policies which comply with overall corporate governance and ensure that the client is protected from foreign currency exposure. She has had the pleasure of working with finance staff at various levels of technical complexities.
Ms. Burton participated in various presentations at clients’ international conferences on matters relating to international Transfer Pricing, Fin48 and Financial Derivatives as a Tool for Hedging Currency exposure. She has mentored her staff and helped them achieve their career objectives through empowerment and professional growth. Ghada Burton believes in investing in the next generation of finance and tax professionals and this is one of the ways she can do so. She remains committed to offering support to women in business and assisting them as they strive to achieve and succeed as they climb the corporate ladder.
