REMUNERATION STRATEGY #1

(assuming special share class issued to mrs. A)

  • Corporate: $500,000 at 15.5% = $77,500

  • Personal:

    • Mr. ATax on $132,500 dividends = $24,375

    • Mrs. ATax on $132,500 dividends = $24,375

Total Net after tax = $216,250 (same as current situation)Total tax and CPP payable strategy #1 = $126,250

Total tax savings = $30,750 ($157,000 - $126,250)
