What are the advantages of a federally incorporated company versus a provincially incorporated company?



Our firm has been providing incorporation services since 1991 and we have incorporated hundreds of businesses.

Corporate Law

In business, the corporation is the most often used form of business structure as it can provide a very effective means of limiting the commercial risk that is inherent in any business venture.

If you are in business, chances are that sooner or later you will need assistance in legal matters.

In addition to this, an incorporation is much more versatile for tax planning purposes than a registered business and it can be effectively used to reduce and defer income taxes.

It is therefore no surprise that this form of legal structure is so widely used in business.

Our firm has been providing incorporation services since 1991 and we have incorporated hundreds of businesses.

Incorporating a business goes much further than filling out a few forms and many legal issues need to be considered. As lawyers we possess the expertise, training and knowledge to assist you in incorporating your business and assisting you in all areas of corporate law.

When incorporating a company, we look ahead to anticipate the future needs of your business, such as financing, so that we can structure it in a way to facilitate its growth and prosperity.

In addition to incorporations, we also offer a wide variety of corporate legal services ranging from the upkeep of your corporate minute books, to ensuring compliance of your company with provincial and federal legislation and, if needed, providing you with registered offices for your business.
