Posted on /by Natalie Sisson/ in Podcast / 12 comments

248 Quote NewOne of the best parts about having a business that allows you to work from anywhere is getting to experience different cultures.

And with different cultures also come different laws you must abide by, including tax laws.

Today’s guest not only has a business he can run from anywhere, but he also helps other location independent business owners make sure they don’t pay more taxes than they need to (and stay within the law).

David McKeegan, co-founder and owner of Greenback Expat Tax Services, supports business owners who live outside their native country by simplifying the tax process and giving them peace of mind so that they can focus on what they do best.

In today’s show, David sheds light on what to look out for when you’re traveling for extensive periods of time, and shares financial tips to improve your freedom lifestyle.
