For most businesses, the natural step after establishing a successful export channel is to set up a presence in market, but how do you determine when that is? What challenges are you likely to face and who can guide you through them? Then there are the questions about the US specifically; which state(s) should you have presence in? Can you operate without incorporating? When you incorporate, can you do so in one state and still operate in another?

During this virtual session TMF Group, Globalization Partners (G-P) and Santander UK will answer these questions and many more. You’ll hear from G-P on how you can quickly hire team members without the legal, tax, and HR burdens, and without setting up your own entity or subsidiary. You’ll also hear from TMF Group how to set up your new entity and structuring it in compliance with local laws, regulation, and official timelines.
