Compliance

All taxpayers, whether or not they have taxable income, must address compliance issues as prescribed in the Income Tax Act on an annual basis. We can assist in the preparation of all of your tax filings to ensure your filing positions are supported by the latest regulations.

Our team has a deep understanding of the compliance challenges that you face as an entrepreneur and as your business grows, we have the expertise to handle all of your compliance needs. Whether you are setting up an office in a new province or expanding into the United States or abroad, we will identify and handle all of the filing requirements. We also stand behind our work and will represent you in discussions, negotiations and settlements with Federal and Provincial taxation authorities.

Estate Planning

An effective estate plan ensures your assets are protected and distributed according to your wishes while minimizing taxes for you and your heirs. Our estate planning team has extensive experience developing solutions that will satisfy your goals and provide you with peace of mind that your financial affairs are in order.

International

As markets become increasingly global, the need for international tax planning and compliance services has increased. Professional assistance is essential for any entity or non-resident investing or earning income outside of Canada, or any entity looking to pursue international business opportunities.

At Fuller Landau, our experienced team have the skills required to address international tax issues. We are a comprehensive resource for integrating your international and domestic tax objectives.

Cross-border Services

When you are considering expanding into new markets, the furthest thing from your mind is ensuring compliance with new tax regulations. We will help you navigate through the tax implications of launching your business in a new country, which lets you focus on the operations and logistics.

We are a member of The Leading Edge Alliance (LEA), which is ranked as the second largest international association of independently-owned accounting and consulting firms. In terms of global reach, LEA has firms in 90 countries and approximately 15,000 professional staff members. We regularly work seamlessly and efficiently with LEA member firms and other global firms which allows us to provide you with the most relevant tax advice.

Cross-Border Employment

Organizations of all sizes are taking advantage of the increasing ease with which human capital can be shared and utilized across borders.
As companies endeavour to expand their local (home country) operation into new and emerging foreign (host country) markets, they require the skills of their experienced home country employees to explore new host country opportunities, conclude and fulfill contracts there, set up branches and subsidiaries, implement systems and train new employees.

Once a foreign / host country presence has been established, companies continue to require the knowhow of their qualified home country personnel to follow up with ongoing training and maintain internal controls, systems, and processes.

Short-term assignments are often the perfect fit for the corporation whose goal in entering a new market is either to complete a specified construction or installation project within a predetermined time or to establish a self-sustaining subsidiary or branch.

Related home country and host country federal and provincial / state tax laws in different countries are complex and are often not obvious to the company and its employees. This is an area that receives close scrutiny by taxation authorities and significant penalties can be imposed by taxation authorities for non-compliance.

We will guide you through the reporting requirements needed for each stage of the movement of human capital associated with your business expansion into or outside of Canada, including payroll withholding requirements and tax filings ensuring that you and your employees comply with all filing obligations.

Planning and Consulting

Your tax planning needs can only be met if your personal, philosophical and business views are understood. At Fuller Landau, we first seek to understand. With this knowledge firmly entrenched, we can recommend various solutions that can assist in aligning your goals into a unified strategy.

Whether it requires the use of trusts, structuring for the purchase or sale of a business, negotiating with governments, international operations or planning for commodity taxes, the solution we develop for you will be as unique as you are.

SR&ED Tax Credits

Canadian controlled private companies that innovate have access to one of the most lucrative tax credit program in the world. At Fuller Landau, we know that cash in your pocket will fuel the growth of your business and we want to help you understand how your business activities might qualify for the Federal and Provincial Government’s Scientific Research & Experimental Development (SR&ED) Tax Incentive Program. We can then evaluate your expenses to determine the costs that can be claimed for the credits.
