The Mexicali Linkage Committee held an informative breakfast a few days ago, where speakers, experts in business, migration and tax matters at a binational level, gave a series of conferences regarding how to establish a business in the United States, and the requirements to be met, particularly in Imperial County, and in the State of California, as well as the immigration and fiscal conditions that are required.
The event was held on Wednesday, January 29 at the Fairfield Inn Hotel, located in the Golden Zone of Mexicali, where around 100 people gathered to witness the high business value event, with the aim of guiding entrepreneurs and business people who have the desire or concern to grow, and to learn about how to establish or expand their business legally in the United States.
During the first talk, Ms. Meredith García Obeso Director of SBDC in Imperial County presented the opportunities to establish a business in Imperial County, as well as agencies and programs dedicated to orienting those entrepreneurs who wish to expand their business in Mexico to the State of California.
Melina Rodríguez, a lawyer in migration, detailed the requirements established by the US government, for those seeking to engage in commercial activities in the country, as well as the types of Visa that currently exist for Mexican entrepreneurs and service providers, as well as the advantages that each one offers.
Jaime Dávila Galván, a specialist in Tax Law, commented on the income tax schemes that exist, both in Mexico and the United States, as well as the variants that can influence tax obligations of a person who have or wish to have, business or commercial activities on both sides of the border.
The board of directors at Comvin Mexicali, headed by Eng. Abel Graciano, Daniel Ruelas and as internationalization coordinator, Ellie Burgueño, thanked the attendees, and the panel of experts who participated in this session, which seeks to bring together entrepreneurs from the community on both sides of the border, as well as advise them according to their interests and their legal situation for proper operation.
