Setting Up Business in Another Country: Considerations
Before Canadian companies start doing business abroad, Canadian companies must make an important decision before starting their operations outside Canada.
Exporting products or services to the other market is an option. It's another option to go after the market. Not a project you won't begin and complete within two years of starting.
Prepare time and money to gain an understanding of the target market. We cannot know how long it will take; it varies between business interests and jurisdictions. Some industries underestimate the complexity that involves establishing a shop in a new country.
To grow your business, you have to get to know your target market, and you have to know it first.
Consult websites to learn about foreign market operations—plan for taxes and sanctions and export and import control. Join Canada in its trade deals, WTO deals, and more.
Let us help you measure your potential in specific markets, connect you with qualified contacts or solve your market access problem.
Apply for financial assistance or participate in programs that help innovation and expansion companies and underrepresented groups, participate in a trade mission or event.
Be Sensitive to Local Markets and Cultural Norms
Every country is influenced by its cultural or individual history. Therefore acquiring the necessary cultural knowledge can be a good starting point for success.
If you plan to hire someone, researching the local labour market is essential. The rules and regulations in the workplace, healthcare law, and disability benefits programs are different.
For cultural profiles from more than 100 countries, consult Global Affairs Canada's Country Insights. You can also use EDC's Country Risk Quarterly to understand market risks and opportunities.
Decide Where and How to Market
Regardless of what your business is, aspects of your marketing strategy revolve around your online presence. Do you need a sales representative to send a brand-new facility into the country where you are establishing the facility?
It depends on your business plans and the types of customers you wish to connect with abroad. When selling directly to domestic customers, the marketer has a marketing presence that can make them able to achieve their goals faster.
Plot Your Sales Strategy
Adapt your marketing strategies based on what your target market has. Be cautious when utilizing contract employees for a product or service sale. If they don't know your business or carry your business cards, there may be a danger they're considered a De facto employee.
It would include substantial costs like legal disputes, benefits payments and taxes. Learn local employment rules so you won't have any surprises. Too many businesses find out this only when they plan to terminate a contract arrangement, and it may be too late.
Know Your Tax Responsibilities
Some countries allow small businesses to reduce tax liabilities easily. Tax arrangements in other countries make things more complicated and labour-intensive.
China, Brazil and Turkey rank as the countries with the highest regulatory complexity in financial reporting. If you plan to do business in one of these countries, it's critical to have a plan for repatriating your gains to Canada.
Getting the door out of other countries is bad if you can't bring the cash home. Therefore, choose a structure that will allow you to observe local regulations while minimizing your tax liability.
Virtual Programs, Support and Services
The Ministry of Economic Development helps Ontario industries expand throughout Canada and beyond. Digital Export Market Development Initiative helps both existing and new exporting industries in Ontario use digital technologies for the creation and promotion of new business partnerships, and other employment opportunities.
We provide export specialists living in key international markets assisting Ontario businesses with business contacts locally.
Know the Laws and Regulations
Every country has their requirements for filing and submission. For instance, the European Union has comprehensive regulations established which ensure that products are used to protect human and animal health, the environment and consumer rights.
Because these kinds of legislation can be complex, you might want to entrust compliance efforts and other back-office tasks to local experts and avoid potential penalties.
