KPMG seminar: US Tax Considerations for Canadian Business Travelers
May 12, 2016 @ 7:30 am - 10:00 am
With globalization of world trade, employee business travel across international borders is more prevalent than ever before. Although employee business travel creates many opportunities for employers, it may also expose the employer and their employees from a tax and immigration perspective.
How this may affect your business
Canadian and US governments are ramping up oversight and scrutiny of foreign workers rendering services in their respective countries, and audit activity in this area is on the rise. Employers and their employees who travel to the US for business could be exposed to significant liabilities and penalties from both a tax and immigration perspective.
Do you send employees to the US to meet clients, attend tradeshows, provide services, attend conferences and/or provide operational oversight? If so, then this seminar may benefit you.
Issues Canadian employers and employees are facing include:
- Employees being stopped at the border, denied entry and charged penalties for not having proper immigration visa;
- Employees being questioned about their personal US tax filings and hit with significant tax bills;
- Employers facing significant taxes and penalties for non-compliance with US corporate and payroll obligations; and
- US operations being stopped or delayed.
Please join KPMG‘s Global Mobility Services and Immigration professionals for a complimentary breakfast seminar that will review the risks and personal and corporate issues that may need to be addressed with respect to your business travelers. During this seminar we will cover the following topics:
- Cross Border Tax Issues for Employers and Employees;
- Permanent Establishment Issues; and
- Immigration Obligations and Current Audit Climate.
