Estate Planning

From now until 2020, statistics estimate an unprecedented 70% of Canadian business owners will be in a position to retire. Of those surveyed, 50% admit they are unprepared for succession in their companies. Change and uncertainty can erode business value so it’s critical to get the right advice well in advance of your business sale. Developing an estate or succession plan usually means having tough conversations about the future.

We start and finish the discussion by asking clients what matters most. We work closely with clients and their families to create tailored, comprehensive estate and succession plans for current and future generations that allow for long-term wealth preservation. And we evolve our recommendations over time to reflect the changing goals and circumstances of our clients.

Excise Tax

Most transactions involve indirect taxes, including GST/HST, QST and PST. These taxes can easily increase the cost of doing business – especially if refund and tax minimization opportunities are overlooked. A thorough understanding of Canada’s intricate tax rules is essential to maximizing profit, maintaining compliance and reducing tax risk.

GST/HST and provincial sales taxes—they affect every transaction your company makes. Start planning and streamlining transactions to minimize non-recoverable sales taxes. If you are considering expanding or acquiring a business or restructuring your existing business, we can help you navigate the sales tax applications to avoid any unforeseen pitfalls.
