Entrepreneurial services

With decades of providing audit, tax and advisory services to entrepreneurial enterprises of all sizes, Baker Tilly Canada advisors have a deep understanding of the complex challenges facing today’s entrepreneurs.

Private enterprise

Baker Tilly Canada advisors appreciate the importance of sound decision-making to a privately owned business’s bottom line. Our professionals focus on the specific needs of private enterprises through well-established assurance, tax and advisory solutions, as well as audit support, tax planning and compliance, management consulting and succession planning. As entrepreneurs ourselves, we understand how to best navigate the challenges privately owned businesses in Canada face.

Public markets

As public company financial reporting standards in Canada move in new directions, the need for chartered professional accountants to be ahead of this curve has never been more important. Baker Tilly is a leader amongst the competition. We will guide you through the uncertainties of change and risk.

Tax Services
Tax advisory

To comply with domestic and international tax laws, make effective decisions and reduce tax liabilities, Canadian businesses benefit from the insights of an experienced tax advisor.

Cross-border and international

The most effective cross‑border (U.S. and Canada) or international tax planning is based on your company’s specific circumstances, and identifies opportunities to both grow your business and minimize your tax burden.

EHT and workers’ compensation

Keeping workers safe, healthy and protected is an important part of any business’s success. We provide guidance to organizations and businesses that might need to participate in the Employer Health Tax (EHT), Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) or Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB), and are ready to assist with your compliance efforts.

Grants and incentives

There are a variety of national, provincial and local government grants and incentives that could be available to your business. At Baker Tilly Canada, we have the extensive experience ⁠–⁠ and financial expertise ⁠–⁠ to guide clients through every step of the grant application process.

Indirect tax

Indirect taxes ⁠–⁠ also known as consumption, commodity, sales-and-use or transaction-based taxes ⁠–⁠ are complex, often nearly invisible charges which can create exposure if overlooked.

Scientific Research and Experimental Development

From creating new products to improving technologies, innovation is the cornerstone of Canadian competition. The Canadian government offers some of the most generous tax credit benefits in the world under the Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) investment tax credit program. Without professional guidance, your company could be missing out on valuable funding.

Transfer pricing

Transfer pricing is a complex area of corporate tax and represents a key point of risk for multinationals. The compliance burden for corporations when it comes to cross-border transactions is significant ⁠–⁠ and non‑compliance can result in costly penalties.

U.S. corporate tax

For Canadian companies conducting business in the United States ⁠–⁠ or potentially expanding operations across the border ⁠–⁠ there are a variety of tax repercussions which need to be addressed.

Corporate finance

If your company is on the hunt for transaction structuring, funding sources, capital or support with corporate investment decisions, our specialty advisors are ready to serve as your one‑stop‑shop resource.

Estate trustee during litigation

In cases where challenges to wills or estate holdings are subject to litigation, a Baker Tilly representative can be appointed by the court in Ontario (under the Estates Act) to serve as an Estate Trustee During Litigation, or ETDL.

Restructuring and recovery services

Other Advisory Services
Baker Tilly Advantage

Business Advisory Services

Data-driven business advice will take you far

The experts at Baker Tilly Calgary can glean the expert insight your business needs to maximize the value of your data.  

Enterprise Effectiveness

An enterprise has multiple stakeholders - investors, customers, employees, service providers amongst others. The accomplishment of each stakeholder's goals is a direct function of the enterprise's effectiveness.

Forensic Services

When corporate crime is reported to threaten over half of Canadian businesses, you need a partner that can help identify and prevent these activities from occurring. The professionals at Baker Tilly understand the impact of poor internal controls and have the expertise necessary to minimize the repercussions of fraud within your business.

Litigation Accounting Services

Whether in the context of personal injury, business transactions, insurance and contract disputes, financial planning or financial reporting, our responsiveness, exceptional quality of service and ability to meet tight deadlines shapes the most favourable outcomes.

Mediation and Conflict Resolution

Left unchecked, conflict can interfere with corporate culture and productivity by impacting lines of communication and employee morale. An impartial third party provides fresh perspectives that can lead to greater understanding and insight into feasible solutions that bring the team to common ground.

Operational Performance Reviews and Process Improvement

Profits and value are generated within the operations of an organization, not in the accounting department. Operational Performance Reviews focus on identifying LEAN processes that facilitate greater efficiency: on-time, on-budget deliveries and high-quality outputs.

Partnership Disputes

Competing interests among partners or shareholders, often fuelled by suspicion of corporate mismanagement, can lead to complex disputes requiring the intervention of the courts. These disputes can range from shareholder oppression, breach-of-contract and joint-venture litigation to large-scale, class-action lawsuits.

Succession Planning

As a successful entrepreneur, you know how to run your business. The question is, do you know how to stop running it? We understand the challenges of succession planning, not only from a financial perspective, but a personal one as well. With clarity of vision, we can guide your business to the next stage.
