Professional Planning to Work Abroad (or Coming Home)

5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Register by March 31, 2017 

Planning to go abroad for work? Navigation of residency issues is complex and difficult to implement in Canada and in foreign jurisdictions. Some of the issues you may need to deal with include:

  • Overseas Employment Tax Credit
  • Moving 401K and IRA back to Canada
  • Disclosure of international assets (T1135).

There are many issues to consider when becoming a non-resident because Canadian expatriates face more and more rigorous tax regulations. You need to consider your investment and currency strategies, banking, logistics, and more. The international investment environment is exceptionally dynamic, with intensified compliance and regulatory standards. Wealth planning is critical in this situation and should not be overlooked.

Other concerns that need to be addressed include how to adapt culturally overseas and planning for your return back to Canada.

This seminar will provide you with alerts and strategies for all these issues.
