We are doing IT Consulting and Staffing business in California (USA). One of our client has selected a candidate who's from Canada and has his own company registered in Canada. Can we do business with this Canadian company? He will be doing the project in USA.
Do we need any document/ paper work to do this business to satisfy IRS? Are we required to withhold any tax before we release any check to this Canadian company?
My second question/ scenario is: can we hire independent consultant and pay them in India by wire transfers?

I would not hire him as an employee (too complicated) but as an independent contractor (no tax filings for you). He will have to get a US tax ID but there is a tax treaty that will help him offset taxation on the personal; level.
The same is true for the Indian consultants.
As long as they have tax Id that is what is needed to start
