    In this current pandemic, more and more businesses transactions are being taken online. When selling goods or services into the United States, you may have to collect sales tax for that transaction in each state your client resides.

    No longer do you need to have a physical presence - or “nexus” - in the U.S. to be sales tax obligatory. It all started with the U.S. Supreme Court decision South Dakota v. Wayfair on June 21, 2018. The so called Wayfair Decision allows states to mandate that businesses with more than 200 transactions or $100,000 in-state sales, collect and remit sales taxes on transactions in the state, whether the business has a physical presence in the state or not. The new law rather allows the state to tax businesses based on the customer’s location and the amount of sales, not the location of the business.

    Many states followed South Dakota, resulting in a collection of similar but at the same time wildly varying tax laws apply and doing business in the U.S. all of a sudden feels like doing business in “50 different countries”.

    Topics to be addressed in this webinar:
    ● What EU exporters selling into the U.S. need to know about inter-state sales tax?
    ● Who is subject to Wayfair Tax and what level of activity is required to subject a company to sales/use tax?
    ● How is this being enforced and how does the future look like?
    ● What Types of Transactions are being taxed and how do U.S. States differentiate?
    ● Are there any issues Specific to European Companies?
    ● What you need to know about the details (who is subject to the tax, Filing and Remittance, concrete responsibilities, penalties, red flags?
    ● What rights do businesses have state by state?
    ● What is the impact of Brexit?
    ● What you need to know to plan ahead?

    This EACC Chapter wide webinar will explain what the U.S.  Wayfair Decision means for European businesses in the United States and how the legislation affects businesses across the country.

    Making it in the USA: An expert guide to relocating and navigating the cultural differences

    16 h 00 minZoom webinar

    WEBINAR

     

    What: Making it in the USA: An expert guide to relocating and navigating the cultural differences
    WhenThursday April 2, 2020 16:00 CET
    Where: Zoom webinar


    Ready to launch your business in the U.S.? Relocating a corporate employee in the US? Then this webinar is for you as experts will guide you through the right steps–from cultural differences to relocation costs–to help you succeed in America.

    Cameron Hefferman, Director of Norther American for Mach Media, and Dr. Justin Velten, Co-founder of Go Culture, are presenting the webinar.

    Common relocation missteps put the expat failure rate at 50%. This session will reveal best practices to optimize an expat’s chances. We’ll also explore how to steer away from global brand “fails” in new markets that can put companies in the news for the wrong reasons.

    Relocating an employee in the U.S. can be tricky. The cost of relocating a c-suite executive can exceed $1 million! That’s considering all the moving parts: increased salary, housing, third-party services and fringe benefits.  Getting it right depends on how well your employees communicate in an unfamiliar environment and how they are perceived by their business partners and clients.

    Europe and the U.S. are both “western culture” and “first world” based on many superficial similarities, but there are some important underlying differences. Learn how to avoid awkward, even unprofessional, interactions while working as a foreigner. Our communication and coaching experts will share how to effectively collaborate and connect with Americans when doing business.

    If you feel you don’t exactly know how to gauge the actions, feelings, or intentions of Americans, this webinar is for you.

    Réussir aux États-Unis : Un guide expert pour déménager et piloter les différences culturelles

    Quand: jeudi 2 avril 2020 16h00 CET

    Où: Zoom webinaire

    Prêt à lancer votre entreprise aux États-Unis? Vous déménagez un employé aux États-Unis? Ce webinaire est pour vous car les experts vous guideront en suivant les bonnes étapes - des différences culturelles aux coûts d’une réinstallation - pour vous aider à réussir en Amérique.

    Cameron Hefferman, directeur de North American pour Mach Media, et le Dr Justin Velten, co-fondateur de Go Culture, présentent le webinaire.

    Les erreurs de relocalisation courantes sont responsables d’un taux d'échec à l’expatriation de  50%. Cette session révélera les meilleures pratiques pour optimiser les chances de succès pour un expatrié. Nous explorerons également la manière d’éviter les «échecs» de marques mondiales sur de nouveaux marchés qui peuvent mettre les entreprises sur le devant de la scène pour de mauvaises raisons.

    Relocaliser un employé aux États-Unis peut être délicat. Le coût de la relocalisation d'un dirigeant de c-suite peut dépasser un million de dollars! Cela prend en compte toutes les composantes du déménagement : salaire augmenté, logement, services tiers et avantages sociaux. Bien faire les choses dépend de la façon dont vos employés communiquent dans un environnement inconnu et de la façon dont ils sont perçus par leurs partenaires commerciaux et leurs clients.

    L'Europe et les États-Unis sont à la fois une «culture occidentale» et un «premier monde» basés sur de nombreuses similitudes superficielles, mais il existe d'importantes différences sous-jacentes. Apprenez à éviter les interactions gênantes, voire non professionnelles, lorsque vous travaillez en tant qu'étranger. Nos experts en communication et en coaching vous expliqueront comment collaborer efficacement et communiquer avec les Américains en affaires.

    Si vous sentez que vous ne savez pas exactement comment évaluer les actions, les sentiments ou les intentions des Américains, ce webinaire est fait pour vous.
