Dale Franko CPA, CA, CPA (IL, USA), TEP

Director, Canadian Tax Advisory

“Canadian and US tax law imposes many requirements on individuals and corporations. It’s our job to make sure you balance both sets of requirements while preserving as much as possible for you and future generations.”

Dale is the proverbial duck moving through water. He looks perfectly calm on top, but the precise, purposeful activity going on under the surface is powerful. Dale subscribes to the theory that there is a solution for every problem, you need to think smart, know your facts, and employ creative problem-solving.

Achieving both the CA and CPA designations, his forte is a passion for comparing and contrasting the tax laws amongst various jurisdictions and identifying the similarities and the differences, and how that plays into creating an ideal solution for a client that operates between Canada and the US. He thrives on the challenge of balancing a tax solution with the business vision.
