Setting Up a Canadian Company in New York

Are you looking to expand and set up a Canadian company in New York State? Watch this video about setting up a canadian company in New York for advice, then call our Buffalo business lawyer.

Canadian corporations will often ask me about how they can set up a warehouse or a manufacturing facility here in New York State. We do have a business startup checklist on our website. There are a number of things you need to keep in mind. First off is whether you’re going to start a new entity down here in New York State or the other alternative is to get an authorization to operate your current entity in New York State.

You will also need to determine whether or not the name you want to use is available through the New York Department of State, whether there is a trademark already in existence using your company name. If you’re going to be actually working down here in the US, we need to work with your immigration attorney to get the proper visas. You also need to speak with a CPA who understands cross-border issues; we can refer you to such a CPA.
