What is Tax Planning & Consulting?

Tax planning involves strategies such as taking advantage of tax credits, deductions, exemptions, and rebates to minimize your tax liabilities. Both the federal government and the Government of Alberta encourage people to take advantage of tax benefits for both their business and personal affairs.

However, tax planning is often complicated, and incorrect tax planning could lead to tax problems, tax controversies, and even costly penalties.

Our Tax Planning & Consulting Services

At Navigator Law, our tax lawyers provide tax planning and consulting services to individuals, corporations, trusts and investment funds to help you save or minimize your tax burden. 

Corporate Tax Planning

In any corporate transaction, you want to maximize your profits and minimize your risk. Getting advice from a tax lawyer is one of the best ways to reduce the liabilities of your business decisions. In the event of mergers, acquisitions, divestitures or other corporate reorganizations, corporate tax planning becomes especially prudent. At Navigator Law, our tax lawyers can support you through all of your business ventures by strategizing the best tax plan for your business. 

Personal Tax Planning

Tax planning isn’t reserved for corporations. With effective tax planning, you can also increase your individual wealth and save more money. Navigator Law’s tax lawyers can help you take advantage of tax planning to save for retirement, tuition for your children, and more.  

How a Tax Lawyer Can Help

The Canada Revenue Agency is constantly changing tax laws and its views on what is considered “aggressive” or “abusive” tax planning. A tax planning strategy that was previously considered non-aggressive may now be considered abusive in the eyes of the CRA. Having a skilled tax lawyer on your side is the best way to ensure your tax plan is compliant with current regulations while also saving you the most money possible.
