How to Pay Yourself from Your Canadian Small Business

Optimizing combined corporate + personal taxes depends sensitively on draws, income, and dividend-salary mix.  As with all convex mathematical functions, there is only one minimal value that describes the combined taxes in terms of its variables.  Our job is to find the global minimum of this function, that is, we find the point such that f(x0) < f(x) for all in the domain of the function.  Wages decrease corporate taxable income until a specific point that the personal tax obligations outweigh the corporate tax savings. This is an extension of Christian’s Master’s degree thesis in which he developed mathematical optimization algorithms to precisely correct volumes and rates of administration for intravenous medications.  Typical accounting is no match for our assembler-level optimization, optimized data loading and use of the THUT algorithm for computing convolutions.  The most important systems in life are convex in nature, and not linear.  Pity that accounting degrees in Canada don’t cover math advanced leaving accountants with no understanding of nonlinear equations and mathematical optimization algorithms.

Integrated approach. The private owner of TLL Properties Inc. paid $16,000 in taxes net of Canada Child Benefits on a $260,000 income or a proven tax rate of 6%.   This integrated one-stop-shop solution allowed the tax rates to be exploited to the best possible effect and meant that more of the earnings could be retained while adhering strictly to Canadian laws and regulations.  Even Canada’s “leading” firms still mindlessly give out dividends: $100K of dividends (T5) means 26.6% combined corporate + personal taxes. Double taxation occurs due to the decrease in the dividend tax credit.  The top 20% of households in Alberta could save up to $60K in taxes per year.

$1.5 billion. In 2016, THUT announced over $1.5 billion of accounting transactions, with customer annual revenues ranging from $200 thousand to $20 million.  THUT provides complete accounting for Edmonton businesses across a wide variety of industries and leverages extensive experience to deliver the best solutions to our customers.

Success factor: broad expertise. The strategy was to enter Canada at the high end of the market: Alberta’s oil and gas sector, where customers were prepared to pay a premium, and  THUT used that money to develop affordable accounting solutions for other businesses.  In turn, that money was used to develop even more affordable services – driving down the market to higher unit volumes and lower prices with each successive category: Venture, Boutique, Micro-businesses and Holding Companies.  Take advantage that Alberta’s oil and gas enterprises spent millions of dollars to pay for the development to let you outsource your accounting at an affordable rate.  We know you are on a busy schedule.  That’s why our specialists are busy for you. We have 4 packages to choose from.

Saving on tax is legitimate. Our aim is to develop strategies with you that plan for your tax burden and reduce it optimally by exploiting permissible organizational possibilities.
