The Logistics of Doing Business in Canada Webinar - Temporarily Moving Capital Equipment & Tools Across the Border
When: Thursday, February 6, 2014 - 13:00 - Thursday, February 6, 2014 - 14:00

Canada is the largest single export market for the U.S. and is a highly receptive market for U.S. goods and services.
The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and Canada’s geographic proximity have afforded U.S. firms with a significant advantage in selling to Canada’s markets. Are you maximizing your opportunity? Whether you currently export to Canada or are new to exporting, the importance of developing a strategic approach to this market is critical to your success. This four part series has been designed to help businesses strengthen the skills necessary to effectively do business in Canada.

Summary: Temporary workers entering Canada are often required to bring tools and equipment with them across the border to complete their work. This webinar will address the following questions and more: 

  • How do I get my capital equipment across the border efficiently and then bring it back to the U.S. at the conclusion of the project?
  • Are there tax implications for sending equipment to Canada?
  • What are the import requirements and documentation?
  • Are NAFTA & Certificates of Origin applicable?
  • What goods are prohibited from being imported into Canada? 

Cost: $35
