For over 25 years, Patrice has been helping Quebec companies with their expansions abroad. His expertise extends from the cross-border aspects of Canadian taxation to U.S. taxation and everything in between. He also has a good grasp of tax regimes in most countries in Europe, Latin America and Asia. He helps companies learn about the tax environment of the new intended market, the underlying risks and obligations as well as opportunities for tax optimisation within the company’s multinational structure. His interventions range from consultation on compliance obligations in the United States to setting up acquisitions, financing and holding structures of foreign companies, in addition to developing transfer pricing strategies.
