Professionals

From doctors and dentists to lawyers, speech language pathologists and veterinarians, we have the knowledge and experience to ensure you minimize your taxes and maximize value.

Self-Employed

In the case you’re a self-employed individual we will make certain you utilize every possible tax deduction and credit. As a self-employed professional, you are required to pay income tax at your personal tax rate on your net income regardless of the funds you withdrew during the year. You may have family members involved in your business in various capacities.

SPH will work for you to ensure you take advantage of any income splitting opportunities available to you.

Doctors and Dentists

Special rules apply to Doctors and Dentists with respect to family members that may be shareholders of a professional corporation.  Care must be taken to structure the shares and ownership to allow for maximum income splitting opportunities to maximize family tax savings and for estate planning purposes.

SPH has advised many doctors and dentists on these issues and has assisted in minimizing taxes on an ongoing basis.  Please contact us to provide advice in this regard.

Professional Corporations

As a professional, you have a unique opportunity to minimize income taxes and income-split. However remaining a sole proprietor or partner in a professional partnership still remain viable options in many situations.

There may be tax advantages to incorporating but it is not a panacea for everyone.
