Financial Planning for Incorporated Professionals
Financial Advice for Incorporated Professionals
Financial advice for incorporated professionals is often two-sided- advice for the practice and personal financial advice. A few things to keep in mind for professionals are:
Professionals are typically in the highest income tax bracket; therefore, incorporating your practice can help manage and defer taxes at a lower corporate tax rate.
By incorporating- professionals can access dividends from their corporation, shareholder loans, and corporately held life insurance, and since money can be left inside a corporation- this money can be used in years when there are life changes such as pregnancy, buying a home or retirement.
Professionals should also ensure that they have access to health benefits.
Debt for a professional is not unusual, given the costs of education and equipment. Therefore, working with us and your accountant can help you find a way to balance your cash flow.
Why do you need Financial Advice?
- Worry less about money and gain control.
- Organize your finances.
