Gray also consults on compliance with U.S. laws for businesses and financial institutions overseas such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), the IRS Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program, and the Program for Non-Prosecution Agreements or Non-Target letters for Swiss Banks.

Gray’s principals, partners, and employees have served clients worldwide. Gray has offices in Geneva, Hong Kong, Seattle, Shanghai and plans to open an office in Singapore in late 2013.

  8. 8. AUDIT AND ATTEST SERVICES Through  our  public  accounting  Iirm  (Gray  CPA,  PC),  based  in  the  United  States,  we  provide   comprehensive  audit  and  attestation  services.  Gray  is  PCAOB  registered  and  has  deep  experience   auditing  and  consulting  for  both  private  and  public  companies  in  the  developed  and  developing   markets.  Our  audit    and  attestation  services  include:     PCAOB  AUDITS   EB-­‐5  LAWFUL  SOURCE  OF  FUNDS  REPORTING   PRIVATE  COMPANY  AUDITS   ANTI-­‐MONEY  LAUNDERING  CERT.   AGREED  UPON  PROCEDURES   COMPLIANCE  AUDITS   International   Accounting &   Compliance  
  9. 9. INTERNATIONAL FORENSIC ACCOUNTING International  business  requires  a  higher  level  of  vigilance.  Gray’s  international  forensic  accounting   solutions  are  performed  by  CPAs,  certiIied  fraud  examiners,  seasoned  auditors  and  investigators   with  deep  experience  operating  internationally.    We  provide  services  for  business  acquisitions,     divestitures,  investments,  divorce,  legal  proceedings,  U.S.  OVDI  submissions,  and  fraud   examinations.  Our  forensic  solutions  include:     BANK  ACCOUNT  RECONSTRUCTION   ASSET  TRACING   DUE  DILLIGENCE   FOREIGN  ACCT.  RECONSTRUCTION  (OVDI)   FRAUD  EXAMINATION   EXPERT  WITNESS  (CONS.  +  TESTIFYING)   International   Accounting &   Compliance

  11. 11. U.S. FATCA COMPLIANCE Gray  believes  that  FATCA  Compliance  will  be  one  the  the  biggest  compliance  concerns  for  foreign   Iinancial  institutions  and  intermediaries  in  the  coming  years.  FATCA  regulations  essentially  require   that  Iinancial  institutions  outside  of  the  U.S.  become  an  unpaid  reporting  arm  of  the  U.S.  Treasury.     Non-­‐compliance  results  in  a  punitive  withholding  regime  or  lost  market  opportunity,  neither  of   which  is  an  attractive  option.     Due  to  the  wide-­‐reaching  implications  of  FATCA  almost  all  foreign  Iinancial  institutions  and   intermediaries  will  need  to  make  a  well  considered  decision  about  implementation.  Gray  assists   senior  executive  teams  assess  and  implement  the  FATCA  requirements  by  providing  the  following   services:         IMPACT  STUDIES   PROJECT   PLANNING   IMPLEMENTATION   PLANNING   TRAINING   IMPLEMENTATION   International   Accounting &   Compliance  
  12. 12. INTERNATIONAL TAX STRUCTURING Today  we  operate  more  on  the  global  landscape  than  ever  before  and  international  tax  structuring   and  planning  has  never  been  more  important.  From  transfer  pricing,  fund  structuring,  inbound  and   outbound  investment  considerations,  treaty  compliance,  withholding  minimization,    estate  planning   and  domiciliation,    to  pre-­‐residency  tax  planning  Gray  is  ready  to  help  you  navigate  this  difIicult   terrain.     Gray’s  international  tax  structuring  services  include  the  following:       TRANSFER  PRICING     INTELLECTUAL  PROPERTY  DOMICILIATION   INBOUND/OUTBOUND  INVESTMENTS   PRE-­‐RESIDENCY  TAX  PLANNING   TREATY  COMPLIANCE   INTL.  ESTATE  PLANNING   International   Accounting &   Compliance  
  13. 13. U.S. FOREIGN CORRUPT PRACTICES ACT COMPLIANCE Congress  enacted  the  U.S.  Foreign  Corrupt  Practices  Act  (FCPA)  in  1977  in  response  to  revelations   of  widespread  bribery  of  foreign  ofIicials  by  U.S.  companies.  The  FCPA  prohibits  U.S.  persons  and   businesses  (domestic  concerns),  U.S.  and  foreign  public  companies  listed  on  stock  exchanges  in  the   U.S.  or  which  are  required  to  Iile  periodic  reports  with  the  U.S.  SEC,  and  certain  foreign  persons  and   businesses  acting  while  in  the  territory  of  the  United  States  from  making  corrupt  payments  to   foreign  ofIicials  to  obtain  or  retain  business.       The  accounting  provisions  require  issuers  to  make  and  keep  accurate  books  and  records  and  to   devise  and  maintain  and  adequate  system  of  internal  accounting  controls.  The  U.S.  Department  of   Justice  and  the  Securities  and  Exchange  Commission  share  FCPA  enforcement  authority,  and  they   regularly  work  with  law  enforcement  partners  such  as  the  FBI  and  the  Department  of  the  Treasury.     Fines  for  violations  of  the  provisions  can  be  in  the  tens  and  hundreds  of  millions  of  dollars,  and  the   SEC  and  U.S.  DOJ  have  greatly  increased  their  investigation  and  enforcement  of  these  provisions.   Gray’s  FCPA  compliance  solutions  include  the  following:     ANTI-­‐CORRUPTION  PROGRAMS     IMPLEMENTATION     THIRD  PARTY  MONITORING   FCPA  INVESTIGATIONS   International   Accounting &   Compliance
