One of the most challenging aspects of starting a new business is learning how to organize and manage your company from a legal perspective. Legal issues appear at every stage of the business lifecycle, and understanding the legal basics can not only give you the confidence to start your own business, but it can help you create a business that truly suits your needs while limiting your exposure to legal problems in the future.
Byron Tse and Dustin Paterson of Norton Rose Fulbright Canada LLP hope to help you navigate these legal complexities by discussing the key legal issues that arise in the early stages of creating a business. In this two hour seminar, Byron and Dustin will be discussing
(1) choosing a business structure that suits your needs;
(2) organizing your corporation; and
(3) tax implications for different business types, among other topics.
