What Can You Do To Deal With The Unexpected?

Would your business be prepared if a catastrophic event occurred? Do you have a plan to cover the potential loss of a key person through choice or due to serious illness, disability, or death, or to mitigate the consequences of a divorce, which can have a substantial impact on a family business? Planning ahead can help you limit the damage to the business you have worked so hard to build, and to which you have committed so many resources. Here are some strategies to help protect your business:

What Should You Do With Surplus Cash?

If you are the owner-manager of a private Canadian corporation and have surplus cash accumulating in your company, you may be wondering whether to retain the funds in the company or withdraw them while paying as little tax as possible. If so, there are a number of questions you should consider before you take action.

How Can You Reduce Taxes?

Many business owners have substantial personal assets invested in their business. This can have significant implications, not only for you and your business but also for your family’s financial security.

What Is The Best Structure For Your Business?

Whether you already own your business, are thinking of starting a business from scratch or buying an existing business, choosing the right business structure can have a major impact on the future success of your enterprise – as well as your personal tax and estate planning. Your decision should take into account a range of factors, including the nature of your business and where it’s located, the number of people involved, taxation considerations, your potential exposure to liability and the company’s financial requirements.
