“I enjoy being able to help clients find solutions, solve problems, and be able to focus on their business knowing we have the tax portion covered!”

What I do for Clients

Hi, my name is Rafael, and I’ve worked for PKF Texas for 18 years. I have 23 years of experience in accounting. I love serving clients in Manufacturing and Distribution and Energy & Oilfield Services, focusing on international business taxation, foreign-owned businesses, and U.S. entities expanding overseas.

A niche I truly enjoy is helping foreign-owned companies become successful in the United States. I’ve partnered with companies from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Mexico, the U.K., Venezuela, and many more.

You can also find me consulting domestic medium-to-large, privately owned and publicly held companies, including: manufacturing and distribution, importing/exporting, construction, software development and service businesses.

When I’m not at work, you can find me playing soccer, reading or spending time with friends and family. When I go on vacation, I love to travel outside of the country, and find somewhere to ski, and maybe even catch a soccer game live.

Did you know I speak Portuguese, Spanish, French and English?
