We will review implications of saving for retirement while owning a Canadian Controlled Private Corporation, how to access your retained earnings and how to effectively manage your passive investment income in a high tax environment.
On Tuesday December 8:
Are you looking to start a new business? Are you looking to purchase or expand an existing business? Join Ana Rejab from CIBC Business Banking and Mahmood Qasmi from transioTEK to learn how you can navigate the several incentive programs available to fuel your business in this time of uncertainty.
Business funding is a challenge in the best of times; and during the COVID-19 crisis, your options may change or your plans put on hold in the absence of funding opportunities. Based on your product and business model, government funding options may be appropriate, from technology-focused wage subsidies, to grants, tax credits and loans.
Ana will explain the Canada Small Business Financing Loan (CSBFP) and clarify any questions you may have. The CSBFL was developed by the government to support your for-profit business plans (excluding agriculture businesses). Mahmood will highlight key tactics and resources to secure funding for businesses via government incentives by focusing on technology and innovation.
This will be an interactive session that will provide you with the knowledge to make informed decisions to move forward with your plans.
