Get Control of Your F.A.T. in Your Lean Startup: Session 3 - The Global Startup


Are you trying to save money in all the wrong places? You, the successful entrepreneur know that financial savvy, expertise and discipline are the key tools in creating a successful business. Even if this is not your “core competency”, the successful executive will know how to uncover the “unknown unknowns” and build a team of experts to complement his/her skill set. A scalable startup is by definition fast growing; it’s important, therefore, to select specialists in the areas of *F.A.T. (Finance, Accounting and Tax) who have the bandwidth and subject matter expertise.

Our series will teach the essential tools needed to operate a startup business. The classes are designed to help identify what you should know to stay focused on building your business.

Entrepreneurs will learn about the major tax issues that must be considered when a start-up engages in cross-border transactions and expands globally. We will also discuss recent news on how successful technology companies reduce their overall effective tax rates. Topics covered include structuring entities in multiple jurisdictions, global tax competition among tax authorities, planning for intellectual property development, what constitutes taxable presence for a company, customer transactions that can result in withholding taxes and how does one manage the foreign tax credit in order to have more profits for founders and investors.
