Looking to scale beyond Canada’s borders is a great opportunity for tech companies to increase their market size and revenue. However, global expansion, if not done carefully, can result in unintended tax consequences. This presentation will provide practical information on what you need to know when expanding globally. BDO Canada’s Tax Partners will walk you through the important considerations you need to be aware of to plan ahead and easily transition into a new market.
Three key areas the presenters will focus on include:
- Outline and explain key US tax implications when expanding outside of Canada
- Identify how to plan and prepare effective tax strategies
- Explain how to remain a CCPC while operating abroad
Come and join us to learn how to effectively scale your tech company beyond Canada’s borders and avoid unintended tax consequences.
