Session 2 - Wednesday, October 19, 2016
Entrepreneurship in the U.S. – Living and Working Cross-Border?

Living & Working in the U.S. is the second of three events in “Capitalizing on U.S. Opportunities” Overcoming the Border Barrier” series.  You’ve built this business and you established your operations in the U.S., what visa eligibility and other opportunities can your business provide for you?  Entrepreneurs need to know the U.S. tax and immigration requirements to make living on both sides possible.    

Our discussion will focus on U.S. immigration rules, the different visa classes and applications, and the nuances of doing business with – versus working in – the U.S. We’ll also discuss U.S. tax rules – why residency criteria matter, taxation of cross-border compensation, social security considerations, and the challenges of adequately reporting cross-border activity. There are risks of paying more tax than you need to so it is critical to know about cross-border strategies to assist you in taking maximum advantage of tax saving opportunities. The subject is as broad as it is intricate, and too difficult to navigate alone. 

Join us for our second roundtable event in the series, hosted by SHEA NERLAND LLP, with a guest speaker from KEATS CONNELLY, a firm specializing in cross-border matters.
