The opportunities to expand operations internationally have never been more varied or promising. With the appeal of lower-cost manufacturing and labour, and access to large, growing economies in emerging markets such as the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) and CIVETS (Colombia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Egypt, Turkey and South Africa) nations, companies in Canada now have increasingly broader opportunities when it comes to doing business globally.
As well, traditional markets in the United States, Europe and Japan continue to be significant customer bases for products manufactured in or services offered by companies headquartered in Canada.
Navigating the web of international laws and building the appropriate relationships with businesses abroad in order to launch onto the global stage can be complex and time consuming.
McMillan's teams of experienced professionals understand the risks and opportunities that come with going global. We routinely advise clients on the finance, tax and regulatory implications of moving into new jurisdictions and can help organizations make the transition smoothly and successfully.
