Corporate Income Tax Preparation

An effective tax strategy ensures you aren’t paying more taxes than you should and that the amounts you do pay, are paid at the right time. Some of the areas we focus on with Corporate Taxation include: corporate structure (incorporate or not), management remuneration (salary and dividends), payroll taxes, tax planning and minimization, advice on consequences of proposed transactions, and advice on current legislation interpretation. Another service we provide is tax compliance. This covers the preparation and estimates of corporate returns, not for profit information returns, preparation of CRA ruling requests or appeals, and CRA correspondence for reviews and audits of returns.


Personal Income Tax Preparation

We help you keep in the loop with the increasing changes in tax legislation. We provide advice and planning on a range of personal tax considerations to ensure your meeting your obligations while taking advantage of any deductions. Our personal tax services encompass: financial and retirement planning, estate planning and preparation, personal tax planning, owner manager tax planning, as well as personal wealth planning.


Estate Return Preparation

You may have been asked to be the executor for a friend or family member. In order to fulfill the duties of an executor and act in the best interests of the beneficiaries of the estate, it is important to understand the estate’s income tax filing obligations. A taxpayer’s financial activities don’t stop upon death. The estate income tax returns capture the income these assets generate, including any gains that the estate realizes from the deceased’s date of death until the assets are liquidated. Engaging an accountant early in this process to understand your obligations as executor or to help plan efficiently for your own estate once you’ve passed will ensure piece of mind that your final wishes are captured in the most tax and fee efficient way.


Not-for-Profit Information Returns

Most Not For Profit Associations are ran and operated by volunteer board members. The annual reporting can be complex if not tackled and kept on top of properly.

Engage us today to help your not for profit adhere to its filing and charitable obligations.
