Business Tax Planning

You’re a hard-working business owner. You’ve earned your success, and we want you to maintain that success by keeping more money in your business. Nearly every business decision you make has an impact on your taxes. Effective tax saving strategies can include incorporating, restructuring ownership, income splitting, deferring earnings, arranging loans, and developing corporate structures that include holding companies or family trusts. We’ll find the right solution, applying our experience in a number of areas, including:

  • Strategic ownership structures;
  • Compensation arrangements;
  • Profit structures;
  • Financing structures;
  • Transaction structures to utilize deductions; and
