Crafted Financial Advice for Incorporated Financial Advice
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 their practice can help manage and defer taxes at a lower corporate tax rate.
- By incorporating- professionals can have access to dividends from their corporation, shareholder loans, corporately held life insurance and since money can be left inside a corporation- this money can be used in years where 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 an accountant can help an incorporated professional find a way to balance their cash flow.
For an incorporated professional, personal and practice finances are connected. Therefore it is essential that both sides should are addressed so you can achieve financial security.
