Planning for Your Corporate Taxes

April 12, 2021

You work hard for your money (cue Donna Summer). You’ve been smart and built a team of advisors, some of whom have helped you to incorporate your business. Incorporating your business can provide immediate tax relief, a layer of creditor protection, and may also allow for your business to succeed well into the future. But with success comes the question: What do you do with your growing cash?

As your business grows, cash begins to accumulate. Choosing to take it out of the company leaves you facing a hefty tax bill. When accounting for the taxes paid on corporate income, plus the taxes paid on dividends, you’re looking at around 47-48% in total taxes paid in Alberta. On the other hand, investing inside of your company used to make a lot of sense, but with taxes on passive assets currently over 48%, and new rules on passive income for small businesses, it is becoming a less favourable option. What is a business owner to do? Luckily, you have options.
