Tax Return Preparation

Corporate Tax Returns

Personal Tax Returns

Personal tax preparation for entrepreneurs like our clients takes upfront tax planning. Since we handle our clients’ bookkeeping, personal tax return preparation is easy for us to take care of, freeing clients up to focus on their businesses.

Trust Returns

These returns have to be filed at specific times. We handle trust returns for our clients and explain when you might want to consider implementing different types of trusts.

Tax Planning Services

Corporate Reorganization

Over time, you may need to restructure your corporation to make it more tax effective or to achieve other business or succession objectives. This happens because of legislative changes, changes to your business, and changes in your life in general. We work with our clients to determine the most tax-effective structure and, if necessary, implement a corporate reorganization, and periodically review your situation to ensure it’s still working for you.

Tax Consultants & Advisors

Our tax consulting services are designed for business owners who want to turbocharge their businesses while freeing themselves from unnecessary stress and anxiety.

Shareholder Loans

Many people have questions about the shareholder’s loan account on the balance sheet. Discover what a shareholder’s loan is and how the CRA treats debit balances.

Salaries Vs. Dividends

As a business owner, should you pay yourself a salary or dividends? There are advantages to each but you may be better off choosing one over the other, depending on the tax bracket you fall into.

Lifetime Capital Gains Exemption

The lifetime capital gains exemption is a major benefit when you sell your business. But there are circumstances that preclude you from getting the exemption. We ensure our clients are positioned to use the exemption well before they put their businesses on the market.
