We're a Canadian company and are talking with a prospective client from Nigeria, Africa. We've never dealt outside of our province, let alone our country, so we're not sure if there's anything to worry about with international clients. Some questions that definitely come to mind:
- We generally accept payment by check, PayPal, or email transfer. Are all of these still applicable?
- Should payment be accepted in our native currency or in theirs?
- We qualify as a Small Supplier, so we don't charge tax on our services (not yet). Does this change when working internationally? Do we have to take into account taxes from their country, some sort of international taxing, or anything else?
- Is there anything else that has to be worked out when working with an international client?
