Incorporation & Structuring
Opening a corporation is an important decision that can have a significant impact on your business structure, liability protection, tax implications, and overall success. Whether you are starting a new business, incorporating an existing business, or adding an entity to a group of corporations, we can help you with your next steps.
We go beyond the incorporation process to ensure that your new entity is ready for the intended purpose. Our goal is to help you set up your business for success, minimize your liability, and achieve compliance with tax laws and regulations.
A Canada Corporation can give you the flexibility you need to relocate your corporation as needed anywhere in Canada, as long as you register the corporation in the province in which you are operating. Further, in the event that you have a named corporation, the name protection extends federally.
We can help you by ensuring that your business is in compliance with federal laws and regulations. Our experienced team of professionals can guide you through the process of incorporating and provide ongoing support to help you succeed.
If you are thinking of opening a corporation primarily in Ontario, an Ontario corporation may be suitable for your business needs. Name protection extends across the province that can give your business greater credibility and legitimacy in the eyes of customers, suppliers, and investors. If you change your mind and wish to operate in another province, you can also register your Ontario corporation in the new province of operation.

Shareholder agreements, corporate by-laws, and structuring
Incorporating alone isn't enough, especially if you are dealing with an ongoing business, multiple shareholders, and more complex structures. We can help you draft and negotiate shareholder agreements that outline the rights, responsibilities, and obligations of shareholders, as well as the management and operation of the corporation.
Incorporating a sole proprietorship
You operated as a sole proprietor and are now thinking of opening a corporation. Incorporating a sole proprietorship is a smart choice for many small business owners who want to take their business to the next level. But, simply transferring assets or preparing a sale-and-purchase agreement can result in tax consequences. Our team can help you with this transfer to minimize or avoid tax consequences associated with this shift.
