International Tax Services

Changing consumer demand has encouraged many of Canada’s food and beverage processors to consider opportunities in international markets, in the U.S., Europe and Asia. 

While opportunities are boundless, many businesses can be caught off guard by complex tax legislation in various jurisdictions. Failure to understand and comply with your reporting requirements can result in hefty penalties and threaten your financial position. 

Be prepared to minimize your global tax risk with an international tax strategy that considers all of the markets you operate in and how to optimize your foreign tax credits. 

MNP has extensive experience helping businesses in Canada build and enhance their international tax strategies. We are also a member of Praxity AISBL, a global alliance of independent accounting firms. With more than 65 offices in 80 countries around the world, we’re able to draw upon the expertise and international experience of member firms to deliver value-added solutions to our clients.
