Expanding your Business outside Canada?
As a franchiser, you give another party a license to use your trademark, brand and operating methods. This license is bound by a contract and is usually fixed-term in nature. You then get profit by taking a franchise fee from the business and also royalties. The franchisee on the other hand, also benefits by using a brand that has a proven business model as well as a support system unlike startups which have no structures and need to work their way up.
In Order To Set Up a Franchise, You Should:
Run a successful brand with a concept that can be replicated
Be able to identify franchisees who are willing to sell your goods and services and follow your business model
Provide a list of procedures that are consistent across different franchises
Show strong leadership skills
Provide a suitable corporate culture that can be replicated elsewhere
There are different fees that are paid to franchises depending on their contractual agreement. In most cases, the franchise is required to pay royalties which are based on their revenues. To calculate the revenue, the franchise will consider all their gross sales and a percentage of this will be the royalty.
The royalty will be determined by the business model. This is where our accounting professional comes in. We’ll help ensure that you get the most of your franchise by making sure royalty payments are properly calculated and all expenses are taken into account. We’ll help you provide consistent and reliable financial reports to your franchiser.

FBAR (Foreign Tax Credits Or Deductions)
For all the taxes you paid in Canada, you can make a claim for foreign tax credit on your United States tax returns. If you are a green card holder or a U.S. citizen, you must file the 1040 form on yearly basis if you meet a certain income threshold. You may be subject to S.E. tax exemption if you reside in Canada and you are exempted by the Canadian U.S. social security agreement. You will have to file disclosure to this exemption with the 1040 Form.
Other than filing the 1040 Form every year, you may be subject to additional tax reporting. Additional tax reporting may apply if you are a beneficiary or if you own Canadian Mutual Funds. You are also subject to additional U.S. tax reporting if you own or are a beneficiary of Canadian RPPs, RESPs, RRSPs, and TFSAs.
