Employee benefits

A customized benefits package, designed specifically for your business protects the wellbeing of your employees, and helps attract and retain quality employees.

A well-designed benefits package may include life, disability, health, drugs and dental insurance.

Group retirement savings

A solid retirement plan benefits your business and helps employees save for retirement.

Key person coverage

Reduce the financial impact of the untimely death or disability of a key individual by covering the expense of finding and training a suitable replacement. Keep the business running and assure creditors and customers that the company will continue to operate as usual

Creditor protection planning

Plan to protect personal assets of Owners, Officers and Directors from business liabilities, such as creditors, statutory debts and environmental damages, through a well-drafted Creditor Protection Plan. We can help you plan ahead to protect your corporate savings from these liabilities.

Business overhead expense plan

If you become temporarily disabled, how long can your business survive without you? Your business expenses may continue, even if you are not there. A Business Overhead Expense Plan reimburses a business for certain overhead expenses (conditions apply). These policies also provide coverage where there is more than one owner. 

Investment planning

We understand the importance of growing and protecting your personal wealth too.  We can help by creating and managing enhanced compensation models for owners and key executives, while you are working and beyond into retirement.

Tax planning

As your business grows so do the tax liabilities within your expanding business. We can help with a plan that minimizes burdensome tax liabilities, using strategies such as:

  • Estate freezes
  • Corporate estate bonds
  • Corporate insured annuities

Business continuation planning

What would happen to your business if you or another key person in your business, were to die, become disabled or suffer a critical illness? We can help with business continuation planning that protects your business and profits from the impact of these tragic events.

Business succession planning

When it comes to succession planning, as a business owner you have some unique challenges. A comprehensive succession plan ensures the transfer of your business to the next generation, at the same time protects your retirement income and assures there is fairness for everyone involved.

Insurance planning for professionals

Doctors, lawyers, C.A.’s, dentists, engineers, optometrists and veterinarians can also benefit from specialized planning offered through our Credential Financial Strategies partners. 

Although professionals share many of the same issues as other business owners, often you are faced with unique challenges. With fewer tangible assets, your business is harder to sell, since it is typically sold to another fellow professional and is rarely retained within the family.

We can help you navigate these unique challenges along with the separate laws and tax rules for professional partnerships that must be considered in their succession plans.
