Allure Accounting

Allure Accounting is much more than facts and figures or your typical CPA-stereotype. Our clients are no impersonal tax ID’s, and we are anything but your run-of-the-mill tax accountant. There is nothing we haven’t seen in our 20 years in the tax industry. Some things brought almost tears to our eyes and some things almost made us faint. The only feeling we want our clients to have is peace of mind and the certainty that we take great care of their tax matters. We are not a one-man-show who is preparing your tax returns out of a garage/office. We are extraordinary – and up to meet the requirements of our clients!

Our entire team consists of 10 employees in 2 time zones who take care of all your tax needs almost around the clock.
We invite you to make an appointment for your free initial consultation and welcome you to our offices in Bonita Springs, Cape Coral, and Hamburg, Germany.

No matter if you need support with your US tax return, the sale of your US property or the formation of a company in the United States – we are always your right choice!

First class Service

Tax Preparation for Individuals

  • Individual income tax returns for VISA-holders, Green Card holders and US citizens with ties in a foreign country and/or income from a foreign country (1040)
  • Foreign bank accounts and other foreign reporting  (FATCA)
  • Foreign business and investment activity reporting
  • Streamlined filing process with the IRS for international individuals that have failed to file timely US tax returns

You have successfully passed your Green Card interview and took the chance to finally move to the Promised Land.
Your dreams have become reality. What a fantastic accomplishment!
Make sure that you do not forget the most important rule: never mess with the IRS. Always pay your taxes and file your tax returns, because Uncle Sam is not amused when it comes to taxes.

The whole topic can be a bit overwhelming and it’s not easy to find your way through the tax-jungle alone. You can, of course, find a “specialist” virtually on every corner, who offers you tax advice for cheap to receive your biggest tax refund. You will certainly find “tax pros” who prepare your tax returns for a pittance after they gained their knowledge in a very detailed 2-day seminar. You should be careful who you trust with your tax affairs because your Green Card depends on it.

Little Fun Fact at the end:
US Citizens with ties to a foreign country and/or income from a foreign country are obliged to report this income on their US Tax Return and might be required to file FBAR.
Your usual 1040 personal tax return is thereby not sufficient anymore.
Fortunately, you have us!

For Foreign Individuals

  • Income tax returns for non-resident aliens receiving income in the US, for example, from rental properties (1040NR)
  • FRIPTA applications and filings when a foreign person sells US real estate (8288, 8288-A, 8288-B)
  • Application for US Taxpayer ID numbers (W-7)
  • Sales and tourist tax returns for vacation rental properties
  • Estate and gift tax returns
  • IRS certifying acceptance agent

You made your dream come true and bought a property in the Sunshine State? Congratulations!
Renting out the new house is a win-win situation. That way all the running expenses are covered by the rent payments. That is almost a no-brainer! A lot of new lessors are not aware, though, that with the convenience of this rental income a number of duties come up.

1040NR, W-7, FIRPTA, Sales & Tourist Tax … Come again? Pardon me?

If you want to save yourself the headache of all the nerve-racking communication with the IRS, the FL Department of Revenue and the county (and, of course, the penalties), you’ve come to the right place. It doesn’t matter whether you need support with the purchase of your US property, or if you have questions about the 15% tax withholding when you sell your property again, or about your Sales and Tourist Tax – our entire team is happy to assist you.

Businesses

  • Bookkeeping services
  • Payroll services
  • 1120 corporate income tax returns for corporations with foreign shareholders
  • 1120-F income tax returns for foreign corporations
  • 1065 partnership income tax returns for partnerships with foreign partners
  • Applicable withholding returns for businesses with foreign shareholders/partners
  • SS-4 application for tax ID numbers for corporations/LLCs with foreign shareholders/partners

Did you become a valid member of the US economy and incorporate your business? You have already accomplished the biggest step. However, don’t forget about the many small yet important steps that follow.

We not only support you with the formation of your company but also offer the service of bookkeeping and payroll. Why should you deal with this struggle yourself? Allure Accounting is here to make your life easier.

We will certainly prepare your corporate and partnership income tax returns (1120 & 1065) as well. Together, we will develop the best structure for your company so that tax savings finally becomes a reality.

Tax Audit Representation

  • IRS (personal and corporate income tax, employment taxes etc.)
  • Florida Department of Revenue (sales tax, unemployment tax etc.)
  • Florida Counties (tourist tax etc.)

In certain circumstances, you could receive a subpoena for a tax audit from the IRS, the FL Department of Revenue or your County.

In order to keep your cool in this nerve-racking situation, we offer you representation at any tax audit. Why go through all this stress when you could hire experts to deal with this situation.

  • Translation of documents (German-English)

However, you are always on top of things because you receive your mail encrypted via email or portal – no matter where you are in the world. You have the freedom to be wherever you need to be, and we take care of everything else. Well … almost.

  • Marena Loeffler Owner/CEO & CPA

    Marena is the leader of our team of 10 and very well known for her quick intellect as well as extraordinary memory, which would make even an elephant green with envy. She took her career as an assistant tax consultant in Germany to the next level with her studies in CPA and Master of Business Administration in Florida.

  • Adriano Koehler CPA

    No tax return is too complicated and no question too tricky for Adriano. He always makes time for his clients and has a sympathetic ear for their concerns. By virtue of his studies in CPA and Master in Tax & Accounting at the FCGU, even the most challenging tax return is a piece of cake for him.

  • Heike Busby Billing & HR

    Heike has been an Allure Accounting team member for over 18 years, and we consider her a pillar of the company. High heels and stylish outfits are not only her favorite working gear but also her guilty pleasures. Who says numbers have to be boring!

  • Angela Gurlitt Tax Assistant, Teamleader

    Angela is one of our re-migrants. This northern light decided, after 20 years in Florida, to turn her back on the summer sun and mosquitoes and pitch her tent again in hometown Hamburg. She is also your contact partner in our German branch.

  • Yanet Bertran Tax Assistant, Company formation

    Although Yanet is the Allure hatchling, this demure Cuban is an up-and-comer. Incorporation of companies and nerve-racking calls with the IRS are two of her specialties.

  • Martina Weiss Tax Assistant, Sales & Tourist Tax

    The native of Austria might have left the land of Sound of Music but she’s kept her dialect, for sure. She navigates the obstacle course with the FL Department of Revenue with a lot of humor.

  • Christina Wellner Accounting

    After a short American get-together, Christina hung up her flip-flops and decided on rainy summers and freezing winters in Germany. Luckily for us, our top-accountant can still be a part of the Allure team due to our modern technology.

  • Elizabeth Brune Mail

    Elizabeth is our Grand Dame and the First Lady of the Mail Department. She worked at the White House during the Reagan Era after a brief 30-year visit to Germany. No address faux-pas slips her trained eye.

  • Gabriele Anhuf Reception

    Gabriele is not only the Allure all-rounder but is always there if we need a helping hand. It is already her second round of emigration to the US. She is the first silver lining when you visit our office in Bonita Springs, Florida.

  • Elke Drechsel Marketing

    Silence is golden – a piece of wisdom totally ignored by Elke. She is our networking-queen and you can always find her where the laughter is the loudest!
