Description: While trade garners the headlines, direct investment by companies or nationals of one country in assets or free-standing companies in another country is a much more significant part of the international economy. It is also much more important for companies--the commitment in money, time and risk is much more material than deciding simply to export products to a foreign market. A cross-border investment, whether a new green field project or acquisition, involves a whole host of decisions.   
In this fourth and final program of the 2016 Going Global Series, you will learn how to help your clients set up their own physical presence in the foreign country through direct investment. There are several common methods that may be used for direct investment and this program will discuss the use and operation of a branch office or facility, sometimes referred to as a permanent establishment, in a foreign country and the creation of a wholly or majority-owned foreign subsidiary, sometimes referred to as a central enterprise.  The program will cover the matters to consider when forming a foreign branch or subsidiary, legal and tax considerations and steps for managing and completing the formation of a foreign branch or subsidiary.

Alan Gutterman is the author of Going Global: A Guide to Building an International Business, 2016-2017 ed.  as well as other Thomson Reuters publications and the Westlaw Business Transaction Solutions database.
