Taxes are a fact of life. They affect every Canadian in most aspects of their lives. Whether it's earning an income, making a purchase, owning real property, investing, running a business, or transferring your estate, life is full of taxable consequences that, if left unchecked, could consume an ever increasing amount of one's livelihood.
For most Canadians, retirement is a major financial goal that requires considerable financial commitment. 49% of Canadians hope to retire before the age of 60.* Whether you have already established a Retirement Savings Plan or are just beginning, it is never too late to begin saving.
After toiling away in your cubicle for most of the day, you decided that wasn’t the life for you. So you started your own business. Most likely, it was more complicated than you ever imagined. While you may not have a boss, you now have customers you need to satisfy.
Running your own business can be very rewarding, but calling it hard work is an understatement. You will face problems you never encountered before. Your financial plan and strategy will require a makeover.
