Default Moving to Canada : Question if I can still work remotely to a US Based COmpany

Hi,

Can someone help me to answer this question. Currently I am in process of Canadian
immigration which might take another year or less. I am working for reputed company
in USA under H-1B Visa. ( Citizen of different country). My company is willing to let
me work remotely. Can I immigrate to Canada and can still work for the american
company. Or is it too much of hassle for my company and myself to go through this
process. Any information or link to this questions is very much appreciated.

Thanks. Shekar

Once you are a permanent resident of Canada, there is no bar to working remotely for
your US employer. No special procedures would be required to do so from an
immigration standpoint.

Well, you will just become an independent constractor and will recive cheques in the
mail. If you want to be an employee, your company will have to register as canadian
entity and it will probably not want to do it Shekar wrote:

Thanks for the reply. Its really a very positive for me. But how does that payroll
work?. Does my company need to get any approval or paper work done from Canadian
Tax/Government to pay me while I am in Canada?. Thanks in advance for taking time to
answer my question.

You do have to register with CCRA (Canada Customs and Revenue Agency) as a taxable
resident. When you get your Canadian social insurance number (SIN) that's automatic
anyway. Your US income is taxable as part of your world income. However, there is a
double taxation agreement with the US where if you are taxed in one country you will
not be taxed again in the other. Exactly how this works do see a CCRA officer to get
a ruling. Just walk in an pick a number. No appointment is necessary and no fees
charged to see the CCRA. Also see the US taxation authorities on the same matter to
get a complete picture. Your principal tax will be assessed there as your employer is
States-side.

Actually, your US employer *can* register with CCRA as a Canadian employer and pay
you as a Canadian employee ... There are several payroll companies that will do a
Canadian payroll of 1 for a US employer, as will some major international payroll
companies like ADP. This way, you don't get mixed up at ALL with US taxation unless
there are other things that tie you to the US.
