Completing business across state lines can often trigger tax obligations. Understanding and complying with these requirements are critical for compliance. Unfortunately, it isn’t always clear when your company may have a responsibility.

Cross border transactions take many forms, from making sales to customers, hiring employees, or renting property. Whether any of these transactions create a tax obligation hinges on the concept of nexus.

Nexus occurs when a company has sufficient connection with a state to allow the taxing authority to impose a tax. To help you remain compliant and avoid unknown tax liabilities,

PMBA experts will conduct a nexus analysis or study to review your business activities and identify when and where nexus was created.

What Is a Nexus Study?

A nexus study analyzes every aspect of your business activities to determine if and why nexus is created.

These studies can shed new light on your business’s tax requirements and help you discover ways to avoid costly tax penalties.

During a study, the team also examines all applicable tax laws and regulations to determine your tax obligations.

    When Should a Business Conduct a Nexus Study?

    A nexus study is valuable for new and established businesses alike. Laws change, and business activities evolve and develop. So even if you’ve completed a nexus study in the past, an updated analysis can reveal whether you’re still compliant.

    Some of the common activities that trigger nexus include:

    • Creating a physical presence in the state, such as establishing an office or renting a warehouse
    • Selling products or services from an out-of-state location to customers in-state
    • Hiring remote employees

    With these activities in mind, a nexus study is essential for businesses that are:

    • Expanding into new markets
    • Making sales in new states
    • Launching new products and services
    • Moving or expanding an international business into the U.S.
    • Acquiring new companies
    • Looking to become compliant after receiving a penalty
