The changing landscape of financing U.S.-Canada cross-border transactions

January 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST

RSM CPE Webinars

Participants of the free live webinar will be eligible for 1 CPE credit.


Unlike domestic U.S. transactions, cross-border transactions can introduce an additional layer of complexity. In particular, U.S. buyers seeking to acquire Canadian targets often need to navigate several potential issues leading up to closing and during the holding period. Recent legislative changes in Canada have also made it even more complicated to hold a Canadian target.

Join us as we discuss:

  • Potential benefits of utilizing a Canadian acquisition company to acquire a Canadian target
  • Impact of the Canadian thin capitalization rules on cross-border financing
  • Navigating changes to U.S. debt limitations
  • Impact of withholding taxes during the holding period
  • Hybrid structures and issues associated with the repatriation of cash
  • Implications of Canada’s proposed EIFEL rules

In addition to this great session, we’ve got a second M&A-related webcast happening that will focus on topics such as:

  • Legislative changes impacting asset step-up planning for buyers and corporate deferral planning for sellers
  • The widening of permitted related party business combinations/split-ups
  • Upcoming changes to disclosure rules impacting transactions

  • Michael Joseph
