Doing Business in the USA Masterclass Webinar
1 July 2020
Meet USA trade experts for a virtual whistle-stop tour of Scotland’s top export destination.
The USA continues to be Scotland’s top international trading partner with around 17.1% of all exports entering the States, worth £5.5 billion. The USA’s size alone – four time zones across 50 states – and vast cultural differences across regions means it has to be treated as a series of regional markets, with different characteristics and business practices.
Join us for a webinar focusing on all aspects of trading with the USA including:
- How to identify routes to market
- Financing your trade and getting paid
- Legal aspects of trading in the USA
- US Tax Planning and Compliance
- Protecting your intellectual property in the USA
- Cultural issues to consider in expanding into the US
- How remote working in a Covid19 world can help you make vital connections
- The Implications of future trade talks between the UK and the USA
Get practical tips and guidance to help you set up, grow and develop your business, from those who have made that journey as well as representatives from the states of Florida, Indiana, South Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia. USTAXFS Managing Director, Nora Rothrock, will also be on hand to discuss US tax planning, plus Q&A from the full expert panel.
