There are two fundamental concerns in any commercial or personal transaction. The first involves the issue of liability. The second is the tax consequences that follow each event.

The Canadian Income Tax Act is in part, designed to facilitate the growth of the Canadian owned small business. Accordingly, there exist a number of benefits for those who meet certain requirements. We provide such advice to our clients in order to ensure the minimal tax consequences.

As well, there are a number of tax planning tools available for you, your spouse and your children that relate to your personal estate. You should take the necessary steps to ensure that you make all the right decisions before its too late.

It is also noted that too often, people assume that if the Canada Revenue Agency indicates that money is owed, there is no way in which to dispute the conclusion. This is an incorrect assumption. There is a process in effect to ensure that an independent third party judiciary makes the final decision.

We provide our clients with a variety of tax services, such as:

  • Tax Planned Commercial Transactions
  • Corporate Estate Freezes
  • Employee Profit Sharing Plans
  • Estate Planning
  • Tax Litigation
  • Tax Planned Corporate Restructuring
  • Crystalizations
  • Spousal Rollovers
  • Family Trusts

There are many common questions that arise in this area of law. Answers to these can be found on the FAQ page.
