I am about to launch a business as a freelance copywriter, and wanted to find out about payment practices when working with companies in the US. Specifically:
1. How do US companies pay Canadian copywriters? (Cheque / paypal / bank transfer / other?)
2. Are there any legal issues for Canadians working freelance for US companies?
3. As freelancers, are you paid into a personal or corporate (small business) account? Do clients have any preference?
4. In your experience, are US clients ever worried about hiring Canadian freelancers? If so, what are their concerns?
I would be grateful for any advice you might have, or reflection on any experiences you've all had.
