International Tax and Cross-Border Services

We Advise Canadian and Foreign Corporations on International Tax Matters, Including Cross-Border Expansion

International Tax and Cross-Border Services

Our cross-border tax group advises Canadian and foreign corporations on international tax matters, including the expansion of Canadian corporations into the U.S. and U.S. corporations operating in Canada. For Canadian corporations expanding into the U.S. or abroad it is essential to plan for the tax consequences in advance of expansion and select the proper entity to operate in the U.S. Our team consults with clients prior to, during and subsequent to expansion into the U.S. to ensure the appropriate tax structures are in place and that the corporation is compliant with tax authorities at both federal and state levels.

Optimizing your tax situation on both sides of the border

Our team works closely with the affiliated Allinial Global association to ensure that foreign corporations that carry on business in Canada employ the appropriate corporate structure to optimize the tax situation on both sides of the border. We also advise non-resident investors and business owners who are impacted by tax regulations in Canada. Our team ensures that foreign entities file the appropriate returns in Canada, including income tax and commodity tax returns, and are in compliance with the appropriate standards with respect to withholding taxes, Canadian reporting requirements, payroll issues, and other matters.

For Canadian corporations and foreign corporations that conduct business across international borders, we also advise on transfer pricing matters to ensure that the corporations adhere to the complex transfer pricing regulations.
