Incorporating in Canada – some help wanted.

I want to help a BLN member who is considering incorporating a subsidiary in Canada. They are a high growth tech company selling from US into Canada at present who wishes to set up subsidiary in Canada as their sales volume increases significantly.

“We are looking to incorporate in Canada (probably BC) and are starting with a blank sheet of paper. Does anybody know any good advisors – accountants, lawyers, insurance brokers, payroll services, etc? Does anybody have any good reference material e.g. on GST, tax accounting, Canadian GAAP? Does anybody know anything about corporate structure (e.g. min number of directors, any residency requirement, min share capital, articles, filing & meetings requirements, etc) Any other thoughts, suggestions or help to get off the ground as quickly as possible? The entity we propose setting up would be for sales and marketing and a subsidiary of a UK parent.

Any thoughts welcome!”

Will put you in touch directly if you are able to help or share some of your thoughts and experiences. No doubt, beer, wine and or eternal gratitude available for any help provided.
