Yelena Epova

Partner-in-Charge of International Services. I advise companies on international tax & business strategies for inbound and outbound operations.

(404) 898-7431

Who I work with

I work with companies abroad that are looking to set up operations in the United States, and US companies that are looking set up operations abroad. I advise a wide variety of client roles from CFO’s and C-level executives to general managers, tax managers and HR managers.

My specialty

I specialize in advising domestic and international companies on international tax matters and tax strategies related to inbound and outbound operations. I also partner with other CPA firms with limited international capabilities. Here are just a few of the ways I add value to my clients:

  • Leverage all available tax credits, incentives and planning opportunities
  • Minimize the risk associated with global operations
  • Provide the support needed to "Go global"
  • Guidance on setting up in the US
  • Conduct global audits in various accounting standards

Some unique things about me

I am originally from St. Petersburg, Russia. I have written international tax articles for numerous publications. I speak frequently at many international and domestic business seminars. I am a member of Morison KSi’s North American board of directors and a graduate of Leadership Atlanta. Here a couple of my accomplishments:

  • I founded Aprio’s international practice and have grown the group to 100 professionals, speaking 30+ languages that serve clients in over 50 countries.
  • My strategic restructuring recommendation and implementation guidance doubled the valuation of an international pharma company.

What I do when I am not at work

I spend my time enjoying culture and walking my Cairn Terrier, “Gosha.” I support my two beautiful college-aged children. And I am a member of the Board of Trustees for the Atlanta Ballet.

People say that I am

I have been told I am easy to work with and have a quirky sense of humor.


"Cultured, fun, supportive and dedicated to my craft."
