U.S. Commercial Service Webinar Series: Doing Business in Canada
Temporarily Moving Capital Equipment & Tools Across the Border
Canada is the largest single export market for the U.S. and is a highly receptive market for U.S. goods and services. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and Canada’s geographic proximity have afforded U.S. firms with a significant advantage in selling to Canada’s markets. Are you maximizing your opportunity? Whether you currently export to Canada or are new to exporting, the importance of developing a strategic approach to this market is critical to your success. This five-part webinar series has been designed to help businesses strengthen the skills necessary to effectively do business in Canada.
Temporary workers entering Canada are often required to bring tools and equipment with them across the border to complete their work. This webinar will address the following questions and more: 1. How do I get my capital equipment/demo products across the border efficiently and then bring it back to the U.S. at the conclusion of the project/trade show?, 2. Are there tax implications for sending equipment to Canada?, 3. What are the import requirements and documentation?, 4. Are NAFTA and Certificates of Origin applicable?, 5. What goods are prohibited from being imported into Canada?
