Thinking of doing business in the US?

Start date: March 9, 2016 5.30pm registration for 6.00pm start

Expansion into the US often seems like a natural progression for companies in the media sector that are focusing on their growth strategy. The opportunities are there for the taking – a new potential customer base, access to talent and sources of capital, and a chance to develop your offering. However, with a new country comes new considerations. It is important, therefore, to get to grips with the business landscape in the US from the outset in order to heighten your chances of success.

In this seminar, Mike Hayes, Tax partner of Kingston Smith, will cover:

  • Trading with the US v. trading in the US
  • Tax considerations and structuring
  • Business/entity structure
  • Liability and compliance

Mike will be joined by Mark Baran, Tax principal of New York-based Marks Paneth, who will provide insight on the logistics of setting up in the US, including:

  • Process: time and cost considerations
  • Employment considerations: classifications and compliance
  • Managing growth and exit strategies
  • Financing considerations
  • Common pitfalls to avoid

We are also thrilled to be joined by Bill Brock, founder of global creative agency AnalogFolk, who will be sharing his experiences on expansion into the US, exploring what can make the difference between success and disappointment.
