What are the criteria for deciding on which country to manufacture a product in (U.S. vs. China/India)?

–Mort B.

Gary Milkwick from Corporate Tax Network:

There is a lot to consider: cost of production, time, import/export expenses, ease of communication, reliability, etc. This is a very broad topic, with a lot of moving parts. If you already have offers lined up from different countries/manufacturers, and don’t know which one to choose, you may need to consider sitting down with a qualified CPA and an attorney to go through the pros and cons of each one from both the accounting and legal perspectives.
