Canadian ownership of LLC units

Post by RobbAlexander » Tue May 01, 2018 10:59 am

I am Canadian, living in Canada. I have been invited to be part of a startup in the USA. The startup has formed an LLC and is offering restricted member units. I have read that this is potentially a difficult tax situation so before I jump in I want to make sure I'm structuring things properly.

I have a Canadian Consulting Corp that I run my current business through, does it make sense for my Canadian Corp to own the units or is there a better way?
