While the U.S. and Canada have the oldest and most open trade relationship of all nations, there are vast differences between the Canadian and U.S. systems of taxation. The two countries have endeavored to encourage trade between the nations for decades. One of the many ways they have attempted to do so is via an Income Tax Treaty. International Tax Treaties & Totalization Agreements are tools that require the application and use by specialized advisors.
The Certified Public Accountants in Tronconi Segarra & Associates’ Cross-Border practice have significant experience assisting Canadian businesses and individuals who have (or who are seeking to have) U.S. interests, whether they are U.S. citizen expatriots or foreign tax payers. Tronconi Segarra & Associates has the experience, technical knowledge and resources to assist Canadian businesses in establishing a U.S. presence correctly, right from the start.
