We all want to keep more of our hard-earned money. We will help you develop tax strategies to ensure you are paying the right amount of tax, and no more than necessary. We will help you develop corporate restructuring plans to increase your tax efficiency, help you manage your corporate and personal taxes and review your retirement and exit plans to make sure you are getting the most out of your business, while still managing your risk.

Here are some of the tax planning services we can help you with:

Corporate Tax Planning

The majority of companies are subject to paying tax, but through strategic and skilful planning, the amount of tax paid annually can often be greatly reduced. Taking advantage of government incentives and tax regulations may better position your company when tax season arrives. We can develop customized tax programs that work for you. Our tax compliance and planning efforts continue year-round to keep you informed of new tax legislation that arises and how it may impact you and your business.

Personal Tax Planning

When your business is also your pension and your family's future, you need to make sure your personal tax liabilities are as low as possible. We can help you plan for the future and make sure you pay everything that's due, but no more. We can start by understanding your overall financial affairs and plans, and can help you identify tax strategies that help you work towards achieving your goals.

Tax Compliance

Tax compliance is a requirement of all private companies, but can often be a daunting task with the frequent changes to tax legislation at the provincial, federal and international level. We can help make sure that your business is meeting current Canadian and foreign tax requirements. We have a strong international tax compliance team that is coordinated across all territories.

Commodity Tax

If you buy or sell taxable goods in Canada, you must pay taxes and duties (except where exemptions apply). With regulations and procedures in constant flux, it can be challenging to keep up. We will keep you informed of the latest changes and requirements, assist you with registration and ongoing compliance for GST, PST, HST and duties and help you with negotiation and settlement on disputes with tax authorities or the recovery of unclaimed tax and overpayments.
