Are you a Danish or Oresund company who is in the early stages of expanding to the US? Do you know how to get the right visas for your US staff as well as protect them from US tax mistakes? Join us to learn more!
Many companies in the Greater Copenhagen region have gone beyond the “dream” of expanding to the US and are taking their first steps to place one or more employees “over there”. Some decide to just go live there and test it out, while others take a more studied approach. Join us to hear about what types of visas you should consider, as well as for a short session on pre-immigration tax planning and a quick overview of how individual tax works in the US. And hear first-hand from another company that has “made the leap to the US” about what has worked and what mistakes to avoid.
Speakers will include a legal and visa expert and a tax-planning advisor from California, as well as visa staff from the US Embassy in Copenhagen and a Danish company who is in the process of placing several staff in US as it expands to US.
Our events are always in English, so despite our name we’re not just for Danish companies! Events are free for members and first-time guests who might consider membership. To explore becoming a member, read more at About DABF or contact us here.
