What You Will Learn

Are you a foreign company that has a significant amount of US-based customers? OR do you have a product or service that you’re thinking of taking to market in the US? With the US economy thriving, investors from around the globe (both individuals and institutional) are interested in taking a look at the US market. After all, there are a lot of opportunities: from starting up a branch operation, to joint venturing with US partners and buying existing American companies. However, the investment opportunities in the States do not come without risks. As in any business transaction, a favorable financial climate is only part of the story. Unless one reviews carefully all the aspects of the transaction and all potential risks, what seems like a great opportunity can end up becoming a financial disaster. This session will outline the key points that a company entering the US market should consider carefully before signing on to such a project. Topics for discussion will include: • How to approach the market • Legal considerations/US incorporation and immigration • Accounting considerations – how/when to structure your US entity • Economic incentives and how they are structured / site location • Risk avoidance/liability
