Expanding Your Business Cross-Border: What Can Possibly Go Wrong?

  • Imperial White City Incubator (map)

26 November 2018, 12:00 - 13:30
Imperial White City Incubator

International expansion is risky.  Some risks, like misjudging the market, may be difficult to avoid.   But there is no reason to trip up over legal, tax and operational issues that may be relatively easy to get right, and difficult and expensive to fix after the fact.

This interactive workshop will address certain key operational considerations applicable to any international expansion.  The topics covered will include:

  • people and culture

  • employment laws and regulation

  • tax

  • legal structure

  • insurance

  • banking

  • contracts

  • intellectual property

  • immigration and 

  • support 

The examples discussed will focus on expansion to the US and certain other jurisdictions.
