The United States tax system presents countless compliance challenges for Canadian businesses. From federal, state, and local taxes, to payroll, transfer pricing, expatriate tax, and legislation, US tax is complex and continuously evolving. The success of any Canadian company operating in America is dependent on tax compliance, accurate and consistent financial planning, reporting, and analysis.

Assisting Companies Successfully Leverage Opportunities in the United States of America
US corporate tax rules and regulations are similar to Canadian corporate taxes in some ways, but also vastly different. It is imperative for any Canadian company operating in the United States to understand US tax laws and how they impact tax filings in Canada and the US.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) views Canadian corporations conducting business in the United States as “foreign persons” and taxes them on income connected with an American business or trade. Whether or not a business is responsible for a U.S. income tax filing and tax obligation depends on the concept of “effectively connected income” and how it relates to the tax treaty between the two countries. Although a Canadian corporation is generally subject to US corporate taxes, the tax treaty does provide some exemptions and relief.
