It pays to be proactive when your Canadian business expands into the US. For example:

  • What are the implications of moving people and equipment from Canada to the US, even temporarily?
  • Payroll considerations?
  • Tax compliance?
  • What if I have employees who I want to move to the US for an extended period to lead my expansion there?
  • What are the Canadian and US tax implications for those individuals and for my company?
  • What do I need to do from an immigration perspective to enable this?
  • When and how does the Canada – US Income Tax Treaty apply?
  • How does GST work if I am exporting to the US?
  • Will I or my corporation end up paying more tax than normal – either in Canada or the US as a result of my expansion?
  • When does a Canadian business need to worry about US corporate income tax and US tax compliance?
  • What about state income tax and state sales tax?
  • How should my business enter the US market, and when do I need to consider having a US corporate entity?
  • What happens if I operate my Canadian entity as a branch in the US versus incorporating a subsidiary?
  • What type of entity should I use if I incorporate a subsidiary?
  • Do I need to worry about Canadian taxes in respect of my US entity?
  • What about FAPI (Foreign Accrual Property Income) or surplus?
  • How do foreign tax credits work and where might I run into issues?
  • What if I want to buy or sell an existing US business? Are there any special considerations?
