For many Canadian franchisors expansion into the USA is a logical next step in their growth strategy. The USA is close and has many market similarities to Canada. Entering the USA market gives Canadian franchisors access to a significantly larger market which can translate into significant growth.  While we share many similarities with our neighbours to the south there are some key considerations that a franchisor must be aware of when expanding into the USA.

In this session John Leavitt from BDO will explain some of the major considerations for Canadian franchisors planning USA expansion including key tax considerations, and franchise regulation differences.

Learning Guarantees:

  • Understand key issues, tax considerations and regulatory differences
  • How to structure your expansion
  • How to support your USA franchisees
