Workshop: Seeing Beyond Borders

Tax & Immigration Considerations related to Business Travelers and Foreign Worker Recruitment
Canadian and US governments are ramping up oversight and scrutiny of foreign workers rendering services in their respective countries, and audit activity in this area is on the rise. Employers and their employees who travel cross-border for business could be exposed to significant liabilities and penalties from both a tax and immigration perspective. Companies looking to hire foreign workers must also be aware of the issues and impact of the current political climate.

Do you send employees cross-border to meet clients, attend tradeshows or conferences, provide services, and/or provide operational oversight? Are you looking at expanding your talent pool by hiring foreign workers? If so, then this seminar will benefit you.
Please join KPMG‘s Global Mobility Services Tax and Immigration professionals for a complimentary breakfast seminar that will review the risks and personal and corporate issues that may need to be addressed with respect to your business travelers. During this seminar we will cover the following topics, with a focus on Canadian and US perspectives:
  • Cross Border Tax Issues for Employers and Employees;
  • Immigration Obligations and Current Audit Climate;
  • Impact of New Canadian and US Governments and their Proposed Policy Changes.
Who Should Attend:
Tax or accounting professionals who are responsible for tax compliance; human resource and payroll managers who are responsible for business travelers, hiring, and expatriate and international policy administration and implementation; and executives who may be affected due to their own international travel.
Presenters: Stephanie Lipstein, KPMG Senior Manager, Tax - Immigration Services
