DESIGN YOUR ESTATE PLAN
You may be surprised to learn that about seventy percent of all family businesses in Canada fail to properly succeed to the next generation. This is mostly due to poor planning, and can be avoided by consulting with specialized professionals.
Trusts are extremely useful tools that offer important benefits like matrimonial and credit protection. Unfortunately, too many Canadian business owners miss out on the opportunity to use Trusts effectively. By strategically combining a trust with an estate freeze, you can protect your assets and defer and eliminate excess taxes.
