International business is complicated; International expansion doesn’t have to be

Hull Speed Associates is founded on the belief that expanding abroad can be uncomplicated and manageable. While there is no exact formula for success, we can eliminate unnecessary frustration by providing on-going comprehensive back office, regulatory - GAAP, Tax & Legal - and day-to-day operational services for your international subsidiaries anywhere in the world. Hull Speed Associates offers expertise and support through a single point of contact, which means that you can focus on your business while we take care of the details.

What makes us unique?
We operate on a truly local level with local experts, leveraging their expertise, experience and networks. Expanding abroad is more than learning the local language – it is a great start! – but also understanding and navigating through the local customs and business cultures so that processes run efficiently and with as few delays as possible. Operating on a local level with local partners offers tremendous benefits in terms of time and costs; it also allows you and your management team to focus on your core business instead of dealing with the complexities that consistently arise within international organizations.

The nautical term “hull speed” suggests that there is a ‘speed limit’ for a sailing boat. In fact, when a boat reaches or exceeds its hull speed it means even smoother sailing. Hull Speed Associates strives to provide smooth sailing for all its clients as we assist them in navigating through the waters of international expansion.
