We Help Optimize Your Company’s Corporate Structure

In order to maximize your earnings and minimize taxes, we help set up family trusts and holding companies for your manufacturing and distribution business.

Here’s how it works:

  • Invest excess funds: rather than hold funds in the operating company, we help set up a holding company structure to allow business owners to keep their savings separate from the operations.
  • Extract money tax efficiently: we use different tax strategies to take out money from the corporation in a more efficient manner
  • Creditor proofing: review your corporate structure for opportunities to structure your assets in a manner that they are segregated from areas where they can be at risk to creditors while ensuring the overall tax efficiency of the corporate structure.
  • Capital Gain Exemption and Purification: structuring of the company to maximize the benefit of the capital gain exemption on the sale of the company while protecting assets at the same time.

Standard costs are a set value that is calculated and used for the valuation of inventory components during the manufacturing process. A standard cost includes items such as direct material costs, direct labour and an allocation of manufacturing overhead. As a product is manufacturing, the standard costs at each stage are applied to the item to build up its actual calculated costs. This is a more efficient way to value manufactured items since the individual tracking of costs by project would be costly.

The primary costs for manufacturing businesses include:

  • Cost of material
  • Labour
  • Overhead (for example: Amortization, utilities, rent, supervisor salary, insurance)

Yes, we have cross-border expertise and have worked with many manufacturing companies who focus on exports outside of Canada.

Manufacturing companies typically have three accounts:

  • Raw materials,
  • Work in progress, and
  • Finished goods.
