#OneForum2020: US-Inbound Speaker

Member news | October 29, 2020

The French-American Chamber of Commerce – New York Chapter is delighted to announce Mr. Timothy A. A. Stiles as a featured panelist to discuss the challenges faced by French companies establishing US-inbound operations.  

On November 17th at 3.00 pm US eastern time, please join Timothy Stiles and a panel of leading specialists who will discuss and exchange ideas on the topic of establishing French-US inbound business operations.  Mr. Stiles is as partner at KPMG and serves as the Chief Operations Officer for KPMG Spark, a managed accounting service that supports the operations of inbound businesses in the U.S.  

U.S. inbound businesses face a variety of operational, business, tax, and related issues – navigating these issues can be more challenging without understanding the U.S. landscape.  Topics that will be addressed will include:

  • Outsourcing bookkeeping (and reduce costs by avoiding hiring more costly employees)
  • Tax filing and payment obligations at the federal, state, and local level
  • Understanding income, sales and use, payroll, and employment taxes
  • The proper treatment of start-up costs
  • Tax credits available to a company
  • Paying employees directly (payroll) or through a PEO
  • The benefits and fringe benefits that are typically provided
  • Navigating the registration and compliance across 50 different states
  • The interplay between US GAAP and IFRS

Prior to assuming his role at Spark, Timothy was Global Chair of KPMG’s International Development Assistance Services (IDAS) practice and had responsibility for the global delivery of KPMG’s services to organizations operating in the development sector. In addition to his IDAS responsibilities, he also served as the National Practice Leader of KPMG’s Development and Exempt Organizations practice, was a member of KPMG International’s Governmental steering committee, and served as the Global Executive Partner for the United Nations and World Bank. Tim also was instrumental in founding KPMG’s Global Grants Practice in 1999 as well as KPMG’s national EXOTAX practice in 1995. He has served in the exempt division of the firm’s Washington National Tax practice.  

We hope you will join us for three days of riveting discussion, insights and networking opportunities.
