Incorporation of Business
When starting a business, one of the first decisions you must make is whether you want to incorporate your business or not.

Corporate Law and Record Maintenance
Have you incorporated but are unsure of how the law requires you to maintain your books and records? Under the Ontario Business Corporations Act, or the Canada Business Corporations Act, a corporation must prepare annual resolutions of the shareholders and directors to approve the annual financial statements. On an annual basis, we review the financial statements and balance sheets of a corporation and prepare annual resolutions approving of these statements as required by the governing legislation. These annual corporate resolutions often include resolutions authorizing the payment of capital dividends from the non-taxable portion of a corporations capital gains, eligible dividends extracted from a corporations General Rate Income Pool (GRIP), share redemptions, management bonuses and other forms of year-end resolutions in order to extract retained earnings from the corporation in the most tax efficient manner.

A merger is the combination of two separate companies into a new enterprise. This can occur by way of a share transfer or sale, or by way of an amalgamation of two or more corporate entities. The two original companies cease to exist as separate businesses and instead continue to run as a single entity. Amalgamations and other mergers can be either business or tax driven. That is, two related or unrelated corporations can choose to do business as one entity for ease of business relations, or two entities can merge because of the reduced tax liabilities.
