Expanding into international markets is often a logical next step for many businesses. However, making your business run smoothly in a global environment and selling your products and services in untapped foreign markets is a significant undertaking.
Critical decisions must be made, and due diligence performed on all manner of topics, such as navigating risk and compliance issues, governance, mergers and acquisitions, taxation, banking, and language and cultural barriers. If you’re not an expert in the local laws, it can be very easy to miss things, risking fines and penalties.
In this webinar, we’ll cover several topics, including:
- Business entity type
- M&A due diligence
- Establishing a foreign bank account
- International business taxation and compliance
- Heeding business laws and regulations
- Understanding cultural nuances and language differences
When expanding internationally the most important thing is to plan upfront and take the time to understand country requirements and where your business needs to take action.
