Corporate / Commercial / Business
The Business Corporations Act provides the framework for the incorporation and operation of business corporations in Saskatchewan. We can help you to incorporate, conclude share and/or business sales or purchases, organize and update your corporate paperwork, and we can sit down and provide general business/corporate advice to you.
Not only have we incorporated exciting new holding companies, we have assisted with transactions involving millions of dollars. The relationship that we have with many accountants – and which we may have already with your accountants - will help us to ensure that your corporation is operating as effectively as possible keeping corporate legislation and income tax laws in mind.
We all wish that our daily lives were free from government obstruction; however, sometimes projects warrant or benefit from government action or inaction. If you need your voice heard and you do not have access to our provincial government in Regina or national government in Ottawa, perhaps we can help with that.
With decades of political involvement at the provincial and federal levels, we have developed certain relationships and skills which just might help your organization. Contact us so we can ensure that your message is heard.
