Our clients say

We had experienced setbacks and frustrations for years dealing with the Mexican tax authorities. After numerous starts and stops, including work with a Big 4 firm, we finally engaged Plante Moran to help us recover the funding. With the help of their Global Services team, we secured funding well beyond expectations — about $360 million MXN.

Throughout the process, the PM team consistently demonstrated their expertise. The practical yet technical approach proposed by PM, based upon their experience with similar projects, was a crucial factor for the overall success. I would recommend them to any company looking to maximize their position in Mexico — the results achieved are nothing less than amazing.

Risk & Tax Manager

After initially reaching out to a Big 4 firm to help up get incorporated in Mexico, we were disappointed in the service we received. We went weeks trying to get answers to our basic questions about structural options and general Mexican operating questions. We were connected with staff who weren't equipped to address the unique issues of an organization our size.

After a referral from our attorney, we connected with Plante Moran. We were on the phone within 30 minutes and quickly got all of our questions answered.

Plante Moran is the partner we were searching for. They provided guidance when were in new territory, and ultimately gave us comfort that we could operate internationally. We wouldn't have made it this far without Plante Moran's responsiveness and their timely, practical advice.
