Advantages of Incorporating a Medical Business

Incorporating your clinic creates a new entity through which you retain control over your business. This structure is favored by many physicians as it preserves ownership while providing numerous tax benefits, such as a lower small business tax rate compared to individual tax filing. Given the high salaries typically earned by doctors, individual tax rates in Canada can be exorbitant. Incorporating your medical practice can save you considerable funds that can be reinvested in your business or used to pay off debt.

The incorporation process demands legal expertise and finesse, as well as the ability to analyze your company's situation to establish appropriate business goals. As your legal counsel, we possess the necessary experience to accurately assess your business's legal requirements and provide the optimal corporate structure for a prosperous future.

The Purpose of Associate Agreements

In the medical field, it is common for novice physicians to collaborate with experienced colleagues in the early stages of their careers. This partnership offers invaluable insights and prepares them for future practice ownership. However, joining a medical practice as an associate also entails certain risks. Mitigate the most significant risks by crafting a robust and legally binding associate agreement.

An associate agreement is a document that delineates the responsibilities of each party, including expected working hours, remuneration, vacation and sick day policies, and provisions for associate departure. Signing an inadequately drafted associate agreement can jeopardize your career; therefore, always seek legal counsel before signing such documents. Trust the attorneys at MÉDICALOI to provide competent legal representation, review your documents, and ensure they are legally sound and protective.

Frequently asked questions
Q: How Can Lawyers Assist with Medical Business Transactions?

A: Many individuals may not realize the importance of involving lawyers in medical business transactions. Your lawyers can assess your current situation, establish goals, and guide you through the due diligence period and necessary documentation for purchasing or selling a business. At MÉDICALOI, we are committed to supporting clients with their medical business transactions. Please contact us to learn more.

Q: What Elements Should a Medical Business Lease Agreement Contain?

A: A lease agreement is a critical component of your medical practice, as it determines your location and the environment your patients experience daily. The agreement should include essential details tailored to your unique situation, such as lease duration, monthly payments, utility responsibilities, and maintenance obligations.

Q: What Are Common Share Ownership Structures in a Medical Business?

A: There are three prevalent methods of share ownership in a medical business. Common shares, the most widely used, represent the business's growth; these increase in value as the company expands. Special shares, which lack voting power, are granted to the owner's family members. Lastly, preference shares are assigned to the physician during the company's formation; these do not appreciate in value.

Q: How Can Business Restructuring Reduce Taxes?

A: Most Montreal doctors and dentists have incomes that are high enough to incur substantial taxes. Incorporating a business enables tax deferral on unused income, significantly reducing the owner's annual tax liability. The corporate tax rate is considerably lower than the individual rate, providing relief for Quebec physicians. The savings can be reinvested in the business, applied to debt reduction, or used to enhance your lifestyle. Contact MÉDICALOI to discover how we can help you incorporate your medical practice!

Q: What Contracts Are Essential for Medical Professionals to Operate a Business?

A: Medical professionals, such as physicians and dentists, may underestimate the significance of contracts in maintaining their business's health. Contracts are vital for managing lease agreements, equipment rentals, associate agreements, shareholder agreements, and more. If these contracts are not properly drafted, they could expose the doctor and the entire business to risk. Employing lawyers is an excellent means of ensuring the legality and efficacy of all medical business contracts.

Q: How Can Loans Benefit Medical Practices?

A: Although doctors and dentists typically enjoy high incomes, much of their earnings are allocated to business operations and personal expenses. However, practice improvements like renovations, equipment upgrades, and other enhancements can be financed through loans. Additional uses for loans include improving parking facilities, acquiring new clinics, and hiring more staff. Contact us to learn how our lawyers can evaluate your financial situation and help you secure the most suitable loan, empowering you to elevate your practice and provide exceptional patient care.
