PROFESSIONAL CORPORATIONS

WHO CAN INCORPORATE A PROFESSIONAL CORPORATION
& WHY SHOULD YOU?

Certain regulated professionals want to establish and practice under a corporation for multiple reasons. The most common and important reason is to have advantage of corporate tax benefits issued to corporations under the current Canadian Law. However, the only way for these professionals to incorporate their own company, is to incorporate a 'Professional Corporation'.

Professional Corporations holds a valid certificate of authorization from their governing body and will not limit the professional liability of any shareholders who own shares of the Professional Corporations. 

The professionals who are captured under these laws include lawyers, accountants, doctors, dentists and a number of other regulated health professionals.
