U.S. Tax

Comprehensive, integrated tax services for an increasingly complex environment.

Successfully leverage opportunities across borders

Complex and continuously evolving, the U.S. tax system presents numerous compliance challenges for Canadian companies and individuals: federal, state, and local taxes, expatriate tax, transfer pricing, legislation such as the Canada-U.S. Income Tax Treaty, and more.

BDO’s U.S. Tax practice helps businesses and individuals throughout Canada minimize their U.S. tax burden. We understand how regulations pertain to specific industries, and work closely with clients to identify new tax benefits. Our practice combines the knowledge and experience of tax professionals on both sides of the border, providing personalized service through a single point of contact.

Experience to help businesses succeed in the U.S.

Canadian companies that operate in the U.S.—or would like to operate in the U.S.—must manage employee relocations, joint ventures, treaty planning, and transfer pricing, all of which have significant tax implications.

Drawing on the resources of one of the world's largest accounting and consulting organizations, BDO helps clients prepare and file U.S. federal and state income tax returns quickly and efficiently.

We collaborate closely with our Transfer Pricing group, as well as our BDO Tax team in the U.S., to help clients meet compliance, operate under increased scrutiny, and identify opportunities to lower clients' overall tax burden.

For companies that require expatriate services and cross-border employment transfers, we offer tailored guidance on payroll, compensation, relocation, and tax equalization policies. Our M&A and due diligence services help buyers and sellers of U.S. businesses structure acquisitions, uncover risk, determine financing options, and more.
