Personal Financial Planning

Everybody needs a financial plan. We have the tools available to prepare a comprehensive personal financial plan. Based on your personal and financial goals we prepare a balanced financial plan that is made to maximize cash flow, minimize income taxes, maximize rate of return and minimize risk. By achieving these, we assist at building our client’s wealth over the working years.

We consult independently of our client’s investment advisor.

The personal financial plan includes providing an estate analysis and an evaluation of our client’s insurance needs. This includes evaluating critical insurance, disability insurance and life insurance needs.

Tax Planning

Tax preparation of Corporate and Personal Income tax Returns is the final product of the on going tax planning process. Prior to the completion of the income tax returns we consult with the client to ensure that the appropriate strategy is undertaken in order to minimize current and future income taxes. Our team is continuously keeping current with the ever-changing rules and regulations. Our goal is to ensure our clients comply with the legislation and to avoid the many trips and traps of the tax world.

Income tax strategies such as Retirement Compensation Arrangements, Individual Pension Plans and Universal Life Insurance Plans are examined. We provide information to our clients on these various strategies in order to ensure that tax minimization is optimized.

With all the new investment vehicles on the market it is equally important to know the tax implications attributed to these investments prior to purchase. Investments such as REITS, Income Trusts, Principal-Guaranteed Notes, mutual funds, segregated mutual funds, labor-sponsored investment funds, Flow-Through LP investments, real estate etc. are some examples we review for their tax implications.

Assurance and Advisory

Our services are to provide advice on the level that best meets the needs of financial institutions, government and the shareholders. An integral part of our service is to consult on the strategies necessary to increase profitability, improve cash flow and working capital positions.

Each client has his or her own individualized key business indicators. We identify this information and assist our clients at using this valuable information to improve the business performance in different areas.

Our focus is to provide our client with information that can be used to achieve their business goals.

Wealth Management and Estate Planning

As our client’s business grows over many years it builds a large amount of working capital and assets that are contained within the company. The owner has reached the pre-retirement stage and needs to sell the business, pass it on to future generations, maintain inactive ownership etc. The main objective is to draw cash out from the business to fund retirement and minimize income tax.

We have a network of income tax experts who provide our clients with many options to meet his or her needs given the criteria similar to the above scenario.

It is important to perform estate-planning strategies, in order to minimize the income tax for the estate in the distant future. Estate planning should be reviewed by all businesses at least every 10 years to ensure optimization of proper tax planning.

Professional Corporations

Healthcare Professionals can minimize income tax in a variety of ways by incorporating their business in a Professional Corporation. We network with tax lawyers who specialize in this area to ensure that the corporation is setup in a way that will meet the goals of our clients. There are many issues to consider when incorporating, choosing a yearend, types of shares to issue, who will own the different classes of shares, salaries versus dividends etc. We will prepare a plan to follow to assist our client in the monthly bookkeeping and government compliance that is required. When funds begin to accumulate in the corporation we will advise on investment options available that are consistent with our client’s goals.

Buying a Dental Practice

There are many issues to consider when reviewing the information relating to the purchase of a dental practice. We work together visiting the location, viewing the premises, reviewing the financial information and preparing a due diligence report. We will review financial information closely and compare to industry standards, to report on any discrepancies that are problematic. We work together with the lawyer to assist with any information required for the Offer to Purchase Agreement. We will work closely with the financial institution to provide any cash flows and/or financial statements as required.
