Incorporation / Business Registration

As a small business grows, its needs and structure shifts. As part of our complete accounting services and bookkeeping services offerings, Small business incorporation may be an attractive vehicle for you, the small business owner, and one that may be necessary so as to ensure that your small business in or around Oakville, Ontario prospers. The very important decision to incorporate your small business at any stage of its development will govern what your small business is able, or unable, to do in future. Most small businesses start off as partnerships or sole proprietorships. They may eventually become incorporated when growth justifies this step. Some of the many benefits to consider when considering small business incorporation are:

  • Income splitting; reduces tax liability, and can involve family members.
  • Limited liability; reduces your own personal liability and protects your personal assets.
  • Lower tax rate; Canadian controlled private corporation tax is approximately 21%, and personal income can be reinvested into the corporation or received as dividends.
  • Continuance; continue to exist irrespective of ownership with an unlimited life-span.
  • Raising funds; incorporated companies can borrow, and there’s an added ability to borrow from the corporation.
  • Small business tax deduction; approximately 16% on the first $200,000 of taxable income, and may lower tax rate.
