  • A Canadian LLP with foreign members, which does not carry on a business in Canada and derives no income on Canadian territory, is not liable to tax in Canada. According to the Canadian tax laws, the LLP is not considered as the separate subject of taxation. It is the founders ("Partners") who should pay taxes from the profits received by the LLP company in the place of their residence, in proportions according to the shares of interests belonging to them in the LLP company, if it is stipulated by the legislation of that particular country.
  • Incorporation of a company in Canada is a respectable and prestigious choice. The jurisdiction is not on the “black lists” of any countries, and it has no restrictions on co-operation with residents of any states.
