"Being from a small practice, one of the things that I find most beneficial in my relationship with inovia is having a trusted partner to take some of the administrative work required for filing off of my plate. It's also really nice to have one stop shopping. Since I often get last minute instructions from clients, it's much easier to issue one instruction and pay one fee for filing into multiple countries versus six."
