Canada/U.S .Tax Team

Montreal, Canada  – UHY International member  firms UHY Advisors (USA), UHY LDMB (Vancouver), UHY Victor (Montreal), Goldfarb, Shulman, Patel (Toronto) have created a joint knowledge group to address the rapidly expanding needs of companies and individuals related to U.S.-Canada cross-border tax and business issues.

“With our hands-on tax experts, the group brings both the knowledge and experience required to assist clients in planning and implementing solutions to deal with US-Canada cross border issues” said UHY CUTT Chairperson Jonathan Levy.  “Collaborating on technical issues from  both sides of the border ensures that our solutions are properly integrated and effective in both the U.S. and Canada,” Levy added.

Recent changes in both US and Canadian tax legislation, along with the fifth protocol to the US-Canada tax treaty, have rendered many existing business structures and arrangements ineffective.
