The Team

Our team is responsible for helping clients understand why withholding occurs in accounts. The concept can be hard for clients/advisors/brokers to comprehend, and our team helps explain and review to ensure that we did withhold accurately. We are also responsible for daily sending out large amounts of money on behalf of the customers, to government agencies on specific times. Incorrect remittance can result in large fines to the firm, making their accuracy critical. Because of the nature of withholding, we work closely with many different OSG groups as well as the lines of business across the company. We are constantly looking for ways to help our customers without jeopardizing the firm’s reputation.
