Tax Planning & Preparation in Courtenay & Powell River, British Columbia

We share a common view on tax: pay no more than is necessary. Most business decisions have tax implications, and tax legislation is complex and always a changing world. We offer a range of taxation services including corporate and personal income tax planning and preparation. In addition to these services, we also provide advice and guidance on estate planning, trusts and capital gains and loss calculations. Tax planning opportunities can arise for a number of different reasons. One of the most important aspects of tax planning is the ability to plan a way forward before transactions occur. Some tax planning methods are date sensitive and as such waiting too long after the transaction can eliminate choices that may have been available. A little planning goes a long way!
