Optimizing your financing
In terms of the remuneration structure for an incorporated consultant, there are two forms of income: dividend and salary. Navigating between the two may seem straightforward, yet...
Over the past 17 years, there have been many changes in the compensation structure for consultants.

Who should read this financial column?
- You are an IT consultant, so you are an entrepreneur. You could have chosen to remain comfortably within a company as an employee, but instead you have boldly chosen to be 100% responsible for your day-to-day success.
- You are incorporated and your financial structure is totally different, and certainly more complex than that of an employee.
- You once left an employer who probably offered you marginal benefits: disability/life/health insurance, pension plan or REER collectif, etc.
You now need to put in place your own protections and strategies for retirement.
