Sheltons Denmark | Working exclusively with internationally operating businesses

Sheltons – who are we?

Sheltons is a highly professional and well-established independent accounting, advisory, and educational firm - working exclusively with internationally operating businesses.

We have offices in Australia, Denmark, Malta and (soon) the United Kingdom.

Sheltons was established by Ned Shelton in 1994. Since the early days, Sheltons has delivered quality services to international clients, covering accounting, taxation, administration, law and general business advice; since 1997 we have conducted conferences and courses on international tax throughout the world – and we have just launched a specialist international expat relocation service.

Our primary services can be summarised as follows.

  • Accounting and business advisory services: Services cover from basic payroll administration and bookkeeping to advanced accounting, preparing full annual reports and providing business advice.

  • Tax services: We have extensive experience providing local advice, multi-jurisdictional tax advice and advice on tax treaty issues and cross-border tax efficient structuring.

  • International expat relocation services: We assist the employer with the relocation of their valuable staff.

  • International Tax Training: Sheltons-SITTI delivers a variety of international taxation courses on an ‘in-house’ as well as an ‘open’ course basis - in locations throughout the world

Sheltons Denmark – our UK focus

We have a very strong focus on UK-based businesses operating in Denmark. This has been a major influence in our decision to open an office in London. The London office will be established in the second half of 2016.

We are a multinational team including individuals from Denmark, the UK and elsewhere. Andrew Woods, who has headed up Sheltons Denmark for over three years, is himself originally from the UK.

For a Danish firm we at Sheltons Denmark are very familiar with the UK, from the tax and company law aspects through to business knowledge, business culture, history, geography and politics.

We are very frequently in the UK, visiting clients and potential clients in all parts of the UK.

Our independence

We refuse to become a member of any accounting firm network, and indeed have not been a member of any such network since 1997. This facilitates a smooth and stress-free working relationship with our UK-based clients’ accountants.

Sheltons Denmark – our focus and our size, and our efficiency

We are a small, independent firm, with more than 20 years’ experience working only with internationally operating businesses – indeed working exclusively with inbound investors into Denmark. Accordingly, we are able to deliver quality services exceptionally efficiently.
