During the 1980s, when Taiwan was undergoing great industrial growth and globalization, Peter established a specialized department for personal tax services at Ernst & Young. The establishment and subsequent success of this department encouraged other members in the same trade to develop similar services. Again, during the 1990s, Peter recognized the opportunities for accountants and tax specialists to examine the accounting and financial planning needs of entities with foreign assets experiencing a rapid wealth growth from the Chinese economic reform, which brought about great economic change throughout Asia and other world economies. For the past 20 years, Peter has been providing cross-border tax accounting services between Taiwan, China, Hong Kong and the US. He advocates a global perspective for asset management, identifying and outlining potential tax issues, developing plans and strategies, enabling clients to have a complete understanding of and more security over their asset management.
