Understand the impact of international withholding tax on your business and how you can reduce your tax obligations.

Understand the impact of international withholding tax on your business and how you can reduce your tax obligations. As more companies, even relatively small ones, go global, setting up businesses and customers is almost always the first order of business.

Many of the administrative functions, such as tax compliance, follow later, sometimes much later. Often, foreign affiliates are created to facilitate business overseas. A number of business transactions flow from the international effort. These transactions often have tax consequences.

Once identified, methods to reduce and even eliminate withholding tax obligations will be covered. If your organization conducts international commerce, this topic is for you.
