With a strong international tax practice that touches many cultures, I am keenly aware of the importance of getting to know, like and trust those whose dreams and goals we have been entrusted with an opportunity to guide.

Whether you or someone you know have tax compliance issues or tax questions I'd love to hear from you. I'm doing quite a bit of work in the international arena with regards to U.S. reporting, Offshore Voluntary Compliance, Streamlined Filing and Pre-immigration planning. In addition, I handle business, individual and fiduciary tax compliance needs and the tax issues that arise from time to time

"Your local global tax adviser" - U.S. business and individual clients who have a foreign presence and foreign business and individual clients who have a U.S. presence look to me to provide them with the guidance needed with regards to U.S. rules, regulations and tax compliance. I also assist clients with Offshore Voluntary Disclosure, Streamlined Filing and Pre-immigration planning.

My clients seek answers, clarity and focus with regards to their goals and issues that rise up along the way. I serve businesses and their owners. My focus is in the areas of tax, business consulting and international. My clients operate in various industries such as, construction, real estate industries, tech and manufacturing. They typically have individual, business and fiduciary tax compliance, tax planning, business consulting and financial reporting needs.

Dave is one of the few CPAs in San Diego who understand the US international tax rules and how to ensure the US tax compliance rules are adhered to for his clients. The area is very complex, with significant penalties if not correct (or ignored). I have worked with Dave on a number of his clients, and it is obvious he cares about his clients, and he communicates with them so they understand the issues. He also knows when to bring in other professionals when there is a need - IP attorneys, financial planners. Dave approaches his client needs with a holistic approach.

Dave is always looking to improve his technical skills and keep up to date on issues. Currently he is undertaking an international tax certification so he can bring more value to his clients.

On a personal level, I greatly enjoy working with Dave due to his personal integrity and honesty and compassion. I look to partner with him on issues, as his clients trust him and his advice. Narelle MacKenzie, CPA, International Tax Consultant

I operate an international business (U.S. and India). Dave has always been proactive and thorough in keeping me advised on the complexities and nuances of international business and related tax preparation. Chris Potts, President and Managing Member at MSP Square, LLC

We use H&B in part due to our continuing long-term relationship with Dave Thompson. He has a good handle on the construction industry, has compassion and provides solutions. H&B has integrity. They provide the services needed for our company. Our last CPA was not large enough to handle our needs. I believe that resources are important when dealing with a company our size or larger. H&B has the resources and expertise to meet our needs. Steve Bond, VP of Marketing & Strategy at Lorica International
