What taxes will we pay for selling our services in the US through an agent?


Hi there,

We are a small company that offers psychological assessments to aid employers to recruit the right candidate for a specific role. We have been approached by a member of our online network who is based in the US to offer this service as part of his consultancy business.

Before we make any formal agreements to progress this further, we wondered what tax this might expose us to in the US?


Thanks John,

This response is really useful and reassures me that we are taking the right approach – for now at least.

I may well be in touch in a few months if things start to develop as we hope to get some further bespoke advice from you.

Thanks again,



Dear Jon,
I wanted to let you know that this service is an option for you, in case you feel you need a local representative in the US working alongside your distributor:
Best regards,
