BUSINESS & IMMIGRATION

Generally, finding an appropriate immigration pathway to the U.S. remains the biggest concern for Canadians planning a cross-border move. Fortunately, Canadians who move to the U.S. to start a business may be able to benefit from investor visas designed specifically for foreigners moving south to establish or invest in U.S. businesses. Questions about whether your spouse and children can live and work in the U.S. under these visas are important to explore. Our team will help you establish a business plan to acquire the appropriate U.S. business Visa.

HOW WE HELP

In addition to questions surrounding the immigration process, Canadians moving to the U.S. to start a business typically wonder how to obtain adequate health care, how their social security payments will be affected by leaving Canada, and what to do with RRSPs and Canadian assets such as homes and cottages. Making the decision to move to the U.S. necessitates careful pre-departure tax, estate, retirement, investment, and immigration planning. Canadians relocating to the U.S. to start a business must also be familiar with the US health care system, as well as potential cross-border tax filing requirements. Our team works with clients on the wide range of issues that Canadians starting a business in the U.S. are faced with.
