Including Melissa Kargiannakis', founder and CEO of skritswap, words of wisdom for working in the remote/virtual world we are now in is much needed.

Joint Ventures

Hi Would anyone be happy to have a discussion with me, or give me some pointers on managing a JV where you are both a customer, supplier and a shareholder? It would be good to understand how other companies navigate this tricky relationship and if there is any IACCM best practice I should adhere too? I have different contract managers who are responsible for the customer and supplier side to eliminate any conflict of interest, but the whole governance is so much more complex than a straight commercial arrangement. Therefore, if anyone has any experience or observations they would be happy to share, I would really appreciate your help. Kind Regards Jan

UK company employing resourecs in Guam

Hi All I have just started the process of setting up a company in Guam, which is not the easiest thing to do if you are a non-US entity. I have a couple of questions and seek the valued input from this forum: In the short term I will be taking on a couple of sub-contractors to perform IT services in Guam, and once we have set up a presence in Guam they will transfer into the Guam office. a. Any ideas on contacts for a local registered agent that I can use for assisting in setting up the office? b. What type of contract would you suggest for the Guam resources to be used in the short term until the local entity is established.? I have contemplated having them sign our sub-contract agreement, however this is under English law and I'm unsure of tax liabilities for the individuals in Guam. Any advice is appreciated. Kind Regards Mike
