When conducting business internationally, a company has many challenges to overcome: different regulatory requirements, environments, legal and financial considerations, security issues, cultural challenges and implications, just to name a few. The temptation for many businesses is to save time and money by employing their existing Canadian lawyers, accountants, human resources professionals, etc. because it seems cheaper or more convenient than finding new service providers with expertise in international business. However, to be successful in a new market, businesses should not cut corners or think of doing business like doing business in Canada. International business is different and frequently challenging but can be achieved successfully with the right knowledge and support.
