The income and social tax requirements for business travelers can vary drastically from country to country. We have developed an easy-to-follow planning matrix, which provides an example of the considerations in these areas for US employees traveling temporarily on business to Canada, including:

  • When an individual is considered a tax resident of Canada for income purposes
  • The minimum number of days of presence in
    Canada that could trigger reporting and withholding
    obligations for an employer
  • The threshold for exemption of employment
    income under the treaty for a US business traveler to
  • How the 183-day or other rule for employment
    services is applied
  • Details about the income tax treaty with the US

“GTN helped us to create a standard corporate model for our expat program to support compliance, payroll and legal matters. We get big firm expertise, but it’s better because of the personal relationship we have with their team.”

“I’ve worked with GTN for at least 9 years and I trust them to fully manage our tax-related matters for inpats and expatriates, international and domestic transfers, international business travelers, finance accrual processes, equity issues, domestic /state tax issues, executive commuter packages and much more. They are solidly trained practitioners who provide me with thorough data from which I can make an informed decision about our international tax matters.”
