Incorporating a company to hold your business assets should be thought out carefully as operating through a corporation is much more complex but offers many advantages.
See the article Considerations for Incorporating a Small Business for a more in-depth discussion.

An incorporated company must file a tax return with the Canada Revenue Agency. Corporate tax returns in general are more complicated than personal returns.

9Where can I find an online corporate tax calculator?
There are several good tax calculators/tables provided for free by national tax firms. Here are some links to useful and reliable sites:
1. KPMG's Corporate Tax Table for Canadian Controlled Private Corporations (CCPCs) - Current as of June 30, 2019
2. Ernst And Young's Corporate Income Tax Rates - Current as of June 15, 2019
3. Ernst And Young's Personal Tax Calculator. This calculator is very useful for estimating how much tax may be owed on additional amounts of income received over a base amount (i.e marginal tax rate).
10How do the Associated Corporation rules impact my small business deduction?
Companies that are associated must share the $500,000 small business deduction ("SBD") limit. Section 256 of The Income Tax Act contains specific rules on when corporations are associated. Generally, Canadian Controlled Private Corporations will be associated when there is common control between companies

As of July 2019, small businesses in Ontario pay a combined federal and provincial tax at 12.5% on the first $500,000 of taxable income and 26.5% on any excess.
It is important for small business owners to consider the implications of these rules when entering into transactions such as issuing or redeeming shares, appointing directors, and transacting with non arm’s length parties, to ensure sharing of SBD is avoided where possible.

If you need an assessment of a proposed transaction, please send a message through the contact us page or call us on the phone.
11What services do you offer to Not for Profit organizations?
Our local Not for Profit Organization clients generally require accounting assistance with fund accounting & year end completion.

This service enables auditors to remain fully independent from the internal accounting function.

We also provide ad-hoc advice on items such as
- CRA information returns

- cash flow management
- internal controls

12Do you offer US Tax Services in London, Ontario?
Some of our Corporate/Private Company Tax clients are also US Tax residents. Canadians holding a US Green Card, or maintaining US citizenship can be required to file and report their worldwide income to US tax authorities.

We work with American CPA Tax Specialists to ensure our Corporate clients are compliant in Canada and in the United States at the Federal and State level.

For assistance contact us page or call us on the phone.
13Should I hold investments such as stock/shares or real estate in a corporation?
For various reasons, some investors choose to hold investments and property in holding companies.

In Canada, passive income from investments such as stocks and shares and rental property are taxed at a high rate (~50.4%) in a corporation. The purpose of this regime is to discourage individuals from using corporations to earn passive income at lower rates than they would otherwise pay if they owned the investments personally.

Part of this tax is refundable to the corporation when it pays out taxable dividends to the shareholder(s). This is known as the Refundable Dividend Tax On Hand regime.
