Leadership isn’t just about building a business; it’s about creating a strategy that benefits all parties involved. At Seiler, that’s how we approach our business tax advisory services: looking at the entire tax picture to make sure there’s a smart, cohesive plan in place.

With a deep understanding of the intricacies of the business tax world, Seiler works with companies both domestically and internationally to build comprehensive strategies that optimize your tax planning throughout your company’s life cycle.

A Consultative Approach

From the big-picture scenario to the everyday details, you’ll come to expect passion and commitment in all your interactions with the Seiler team.

Industry Expertise

Seiler has the experience of a major tax firm, but with the local touch that comes from spending decades in the San Francisco Bay Area. Clients regularly benefit from our industry expertise in major area sectors, such as:

  • Biotech and Life Sciences
  • Distribution
  • Financial Services
  • Hospitality
  • Manufacturing
  • Professional Services
  • Real Estate
  • Software
  • Technology

Global Reach

We all have a home base, and while ours is Northern California, we also have a strong international presence. Seiler is an independent member of HLB, the global advisory and accounting network, with presence in over 150 global jurisdictions.

An Integrated Scope

Your life is more than your business. Because we frequently serve high-net-worth individuals with closely held businesses, our delivery involves a much broader scope than most other tax advisory firms. We look at the impact of decisions on both a micro and macro level because, at the end of the day, it’s not just your business – it’s your life.
