Corporate Lawyer in Barrhead

Owning a growing business is exciting. It can also be stressful. At a certain point, your business may get too big for you to handle alone. For many business owners in Barrhead, this happens when their business starts making over $60,000. Taxes, payroll, legal liability, and more, become very complicated to deal with alone. In that situation, many decide to incorporate their business. For that, you need a lawyer.

Why Do I Need a Corporate Lawyer to Incorporate My Business?

Technically speaking you don’t. There are instructions on the Service Alberta website. But the instructions there and elsewhere, do not help with the complicated legalities that need to be negotiated when incorporating. Part of incorporating your small business is setting up the legal structure of your corporation. The document that comes out of this process is called the Article of Incorporation. Writing the article of incorporation requires a significant amount of legal expertise, both on the provincial and federal levels.

Our corporate law team can help you to navigate the complicated terrain of taxes, law, and business. Part of our job is to take the dense and difficult material and explain it to you in clear and simple terms. If you are a majority shareholder, will still be the one making the decisions for your business. We just give you the ability to make them effectively.
