Incorporation to Retirement
A multi-disciplinary suite of services tailored to assist veterinarians
Incorporating a veterinary professional corporation can bring significant advantages. We work directly with tax advisors and accountants to ensure the most appropriate corporate structure is established in order to achieve long term goals.
Purchase and Sale of a Practice
A veterinary practice is one of the most valuable assets a veterinarian may own and the decision to sell or purchase a practice is significant. There are many considerations that should be made with respect to the sale or purchase of a practice and we work closely with clients and their advisors to identify the most appropriate strategies to achieve the goals of our client.
Retirement and Succession Planning
The development of an effective succession plan for your medical practice is a key part of ensuring a smooth transition into retirement.
Estate Planning for Professionals
As you progress in your career, your estate plan may become more complex. Dual Wills may be used to protect certain eligible assets from estate and administration tax.
