A Powerful Tax Saving Tool!
Business owners of all industries use a family trust to take advantage of a number of financial and tax saving strategies such as:
- Income-split with family members
- Multiply the Life-Time Capital Gains Exemption
- Creditor Proof assets
- Estate and Succession Plan
- Secure a loved one who has a disability
Due to growing popularity, the Canadian Revenue Agency has put these trusts under the microscope. Unfortunately, very few business owners fully understand how discretionary and personal trusts work or the steps it takes in order to structure one. Furthermore, a business owner must ensure that their family trust is properly established. If not, their business may be subject to a penalty.
