How We Can Help

If you are a Canadian business looking to expand in the American market, or a U.S. company looking to break into the Canadian market, there are certain steps you will need to take to ensure a successful international business venture. You require:

  • Legal and tax/accounting services to properly establish your company and bring your products or services across the border
  • Financial services for accessing capital or a customized cash management package to meet your business needs
  • Relevant marketing expertise to effectively sell your product or service in a new market

Traditionally, business owners have been required to source subject matter professionals in each of these service areas, independent of each other, to complete these steps. This model is time consuming, expensive, inefficient, and more often than not, frustrating.

The TiviTrade model offers a simplified “one stop shop” approach that instantly connects you to experienced professionals, in each service area, who will work together to establish your successful cross-border business – step by step. Our seamless services are not only effective, they provide the added assurance that the important aspects of your business are being covered, from all angles simultaneously.

With less to research, worry about, manage and administer, you can focus on growth. It’s that easy.
