Business Structuring Advice

One of the most important decisions faced by new business owners is choosing the right structure for their organization. However, most individuals do not give serious consideration to their options – which can lead to grave financial and operational implications down the track.

Having the right business structure in place from the outset is crucial. Factors that can influence your choice of structure can depend on the size and type of business, your personal circumstances, and how much you plan to grow the business. In addition to providing the foundations for tax planning, a correct structure offers the following benefits:

  • To protect your major assets (such as your family home) from risk
  • Personal protection from litigation and liability
  • To future proof operational changes i.e. to be able to scale up should expansion be a key priority for your business
  • To minimize the amount of tax you need to pay

The typical business structures used in Canada include:

  • Sole trader – when an individual trades on their own
  • Partnership – when a business is run by a number of individuals or entities (but not as a company)
  • Company – a legal entity that is completely separate from its owners
  • Trust – an entity that holds property or income for the benefit of others
