HMLLP “U.S. International Tax and Business Update” Seminars for Cross-Border Companies

There is a myriad of corporate and tax considerations for businesses working across the United States-Mexico border, from corporate formation and structure decisions to tax obligations and reporting compliance. Cross-border businesses that fail to meet reporting requirements from both governments could face hefty penalties.

To help businesses in dynamic, cross-border regions, Hone Maxwell LLP is holding a series of free, invite-only, bilingual seminars. The first two “U.S. International Tax and Business Update” events were earlier this year in Tijuana and  Mexico City. At each seminar, HMLLP’S international tax law and corporate law attorneys are joined by financial and business experts in the region. Together, they give attendees practical information to help them grow their businesses and meet their goals while complying with applicable international tax and corporate laws.

Among the laws the team is discussing during the series is the Corporate Transparency Act. One of the biggest challenges for cross-border businesses today, the CTA is a U.S. law aimed at increasing transparency around company ownership. It requires certain businesses to report information about their “beneficial owners” to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). Beneficial owners are individuals who hold significant control or economic interest in a company, even if they don’t appear on the surface.

For the presentations in Mexico, Managing Partner Josh Maxwell and Partner Carolina Juarez were joined by Enterprise Bank & Trust Senior Vice President Alex Rodriguez and Pacific Coast Commercial Director of International Sales & Leasing and Broker Associate Yolanda B. Deriquer. There are similar presentations being planned for Singapore attendees.
