Frequently asked questions.

What are the primary types of business structures in Canada?

In Canada, businesses can operate as sole proprietorships, partnerships, corporations, or cooperatives. Each structure has its advantages and considerations, such as liability, taxation, and governance, impacting the choice of structure for entrepreneurs and business owners.

How do I incorporate a company in Canada?

To incorporate a business in Canada, one must choose between federal and provincial incorporation. The process typically involves selecting a unique name, filing Articles of Incorporation with the appropriate government body, paying a fee, and establishing a governance structure. Once approved, the company receives a certificate of incorporation.

What are the differences between federal and provincial incorporation?

Federal incorporation allows a business to operate under the same name and receive certain protections across all Canadian provinces and territories. Provincial incorporation restricts business operations to the incorporating province, but it can be more straightforward and less expensive.

Do I need a shareholders’ agreement?

While not legally required, a shareholders’ agreement is highly recommended for businesses with multiple shareholders. This agreement outlines shareholders’ rights, responsibilities, and procedures for resolving disputes, selling shares, or managing other critical company decisions, helping prevent potential future conflicts.

What are the corporate tax obligations in Canada?

Corporations in Canada are subject to both federal and provincial corporate taxes on their taxable income. The combined rate varies depending on the province and the type of income earned (i.e., active business income, investment income). Regular filing of tax returns, and in some cases, monthly or quarterly instalment payments, are mandatory.
