Just an over reaction to the Microsoft thing a few years ago. May also want to limit expenses from managers that will just rubberstamp contract renewals too.

Ok, so bottom line I guess is that I am out of luck. It is not likely that they would go through the hassle of setting up a Canadian payroll and other associated headaches for one employee.
Thanks for your help!

So you are saying that the US company will send the exempt withholding to the IRS and then do a Canadian payroll for me? When people have spoken about the US company sending in a 1042 to exempt IRS withholding, I just assumed that the US company would send the full wage to me and then I would remit ...

One was in pgs 1 to 3 somewhere and the other was in Dec 21,2006 where Mark Serbinski suggested: "Payments made to non resident aliens for services rendered OUTSIDE of the U.S., are gene...

nelsona, so you say a lot of Canadians do this? I have not been able to find any. I have searched google, looked through these forums, and talked to recruiting agencies and haven't found anyone that knows anything about this. Most situations involve a Canadian office or working in the US. I think it...

Good idea, that's what I am right now. But because the company has a one year limit on contracts and I have been there a year, Its either full-time or look somewhere else.

That would require them to set up a Canadian payroll system etc, so I would guess that wouldn't happen. They can no longer continue me as a contractor either.
So I suppose the situation is not feasible.

Canadian, working in Canada, for US company

I have had a great deal of problems trying to find answers to my situation. I have been offered full-time employment by a company located in the US. I however, will be working 100% in Canada for them. As far as I can figure, I am a non-resident alien and have zero US sourced income and therefore: I ...
