Miami CPA Firm Expands Expertise, Global Reach with Acquisition of Internationally Experienced Accounting Practice

January 10, 2022

Coral Gables, Florida (January 10, 2022) – AbitOs, a leading CPA and advisory firm serving domestic and international clients, has acquired Boca Raton, Florida-based CPA firm, Brunton, Strachan and Khan. The deal brings to AbitOs international tax consulting and planning partners Ali Khan, CPA, and Kelly Strachan, EA, who becomes AbitOs’ first female equity partner. The acquisition also expands AbitOs’ physical service area to include offices from Homestead to Miami’s Brickell financial district to Boca Raton and Dubai, UAE. The deal closed this month.

“This acquisition will provide unmatched domestic and international tax planning expertise and global reach for clients of both firms,” AbitOs Managing Partner Raimundo Lopez-Lima Levi said. “Kelly and Ali are highly respected in the US, Canada and Dubai for handling the most complicated domestic and cross-border transactions. The addition of these two professionals and their team will broaden the increasingly global resources our clients demand.”

Khan and Strachan work with US citizens, residents, green card holders, nonresident aliens, and high net worth individuals, as well as foreign corporations, foreign partnerships, and foreign trusts. They bolster the decades of intellectual capital, hemispheric expertise and personalized attention AbitOs’ clients have come to trust.

“Formulating and structuring US business structures and real estate investments, together with providing any relevant tax guidance for Canadian and international corporations, is a major segment of our work,” Khan said. “As the scale and scope of deal flow moving into Florida becomes increasingly complicated, the need for our expertise is equally important.”

Khan and Strachan both will remain based at the Boca Raton office, solidifying AbitOs’ presence in Palm Beach and Broward counties. The firm’s seven-person office in Dubai will serve clients with tax advisory needs throughout the Middle East.

“We are excited about the opportunities this news provides our clients and our people,” Strachan said. “As the world continues to flatten and global commerce grows, multinational companies and high net worth individuals rely on accounting advisors with the skill and reach to serve them. We are that firm.”
