Inbound tax services for foreign-owned U.S. companies
Navigating tax challenges in the world’s largest economy
The U.S. market offers tremendous opportunities for foreign-owned businesses. But successfully capitalizing on those opportunities also means understanding and navigating a complex array of tax issues at the federal and state levels. Consider some common questions you must answer:
- Will your operation rise to the level of a permanent establishment?
- Should you form a U.S. subsidiary and, if so, what form of entity best fits your strategy?
- How will you structure your capital? Can you have too much debt?
- Will there be related-party transactions? Do you need a transfer pricing analysis and documentation?
- Do you understand your full range of compliance and reporting obligations?
- If you have a permanent establishment, what about your employees? Do you have appropriate policies in place to help them understand and address their tax needs?
- Will your U.S. operations create state and local tax obligations? In which jurisdictions? What will you need to file, and where?
