Avoid hidden costs and minimize tax by building a detailed estate plan
For many physicians, incorporation is an important financial planning tool to help defer tax, split income and manage savings. However, not every physician considers that the benefits of a corporation can continue beyond practice and retirement. In fact, diligent corporate planning can also help in reaching many of your estate planning goals.
Whether you’re entering the latter half of your career or you’ve already retired, we invite you to join us for a webinar where we will discuss corporate planning strategies that could help you lower taxes and leave more behind for your family.
Strategies we will discuss include dual wills, inter vivos trusts , surplus stripping (aka capital gains stripping), corporate-owned life insurance and philanthropic giving.
