Past Event

Overcoming the Border Barrier Series - Working in the U.S.
When: Wednesday, March 2, 2016 - 07:45 - Wednesday, March 2, 2016 - 09:30

As you establish your operations in the U.S., you must familiarize yourself with the complexities of managing a business in a different country. While the market south of the border is lucrative and may seem familiar to Canada, there are a number of U.S. tax and immigration requirements that must be considered.

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 Richter LLP, with a guest speaker from Cumming & Partners, a boutique law firm specializing in cross-border matters. 

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.

Please RSVP by February 26, 2016
