We currently are accountants for Dentists in Toronto, Mississauga, Vaughan, Oakville, Burlington, Brampton, Guelph, Milton and the Ontario region.
We service both full service dental clinics and associates with the following:
Dental Corporation: Share structure for income splitting (Voting vs Non-voting), share classes, shareholder agreements. We work closely with lawyers to provide the ideal structures for your corporation. It is critical for Dentists to consider the corporate structures as the practices gain value and these businesses qualify for the life time capital gains exemption amount of $800,000 per shareholder.
Buying and Selling practice: We assist Dentists in purchasing and selling their practices both from within our own client base and our networks. We also assist with Dental practice evaluations and financing as necessary. We perform due diligence prior to purchasing of dental practices.
Full Accounting: Monthly electronic bookkeeping (pro-active management of expenses and business decisions to find solutions to reduce taxable income between corporation and personal. Separating business vs. personal. Payroll management for hygienists, staff.
Tax Planning: Salary vs. Dividends, income splitting strategies, shareholder loans, home loans, etc. Avoiding tax triggers for purchasing additional properties, etc. In Ontario a Dentist can be the only common share holder and can make his spouse and children and parents non-voting share holders who are eligible for dividends of up to $38,000 on the personal side without tax implications. It is critical to manage and set it up properly. Children under 18 does not apply in this scenario but children in University can qualify.
Filing Corporate returns: Annual filing of Corporate returns and keeping corporation compliant with CRA. We handle all CRA dealings for both personal and corporate.

Holding Companies: As revenues grow in the Dental Corporation it is essential to consider holding companies to make additional purchases of assets and not pull it out of the corporation to cause tax triggers.
