The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has made it easier for U.S. business persons to temporarily enter Canada and bring goods with them. Nevertheless, American businesses conducting temporary work in Canada still find themselves facing several questions; - Do I need to get a visa to do temporary work in Canada? - How do I get my capital equipment across the border efficiently and then bring it back to the U.S. at the conclusion of the project? - What are the tax implications for my company and my employees doing work in Canada? During this webinar you will have the opportunity to get answers to these questions from experts in the field of Customs Brokerage, International Tax and International Immigration. Join us to learn more about how you can efficiently, temporarily move goods and people across the border into Canada. The fee for this webinar is $35.
