estate implications?

surprises?


What is it about practising medicine that
you’ll
– Harry
Emerson Fosdick
miss most?

What could you see yourself doing in
retirement in order to fill that gap?

you really want from retirement.

SMART Goals
Specific

This is key to meeting your goals.
SMART Goal Examples

Buy a new Lincoln MKZ Hybrid by December 2013, paid for
with cash from my primary savings account …

Complete kitchen renovations by summer of 2014 – focus
on doing most of this on my own to limit budget to $25,000
 Wind down practice so that I will be fully retired by
January, 2015 and ready to assist in caring for
grandchildren two days a week.
Step 2: Determine Your Income

Clarify goals and assign a cost where applicable.

Determine sources of income and risks associated with
generating that income.
Sources of Income In Retirement?

Canada Pension Plan (CPP)/Old Age Security (OAS)

Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF)

Sell Property
 Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA)

Inheritance

Bank Account

Joint Investment Account (JtIA)

HOOP, Sick Kids pensions


Step 3: Create Your Roadmap

Winding down practice

What to do with corporation

Where will my income come from

How will my net worth evolve
 Will my portfolio stand up to market surprises

Have I considered contingencies
Winding Down Your Practice
Things to consider:
►
What to do with patient records
►
Dealing with staff. i.e.: termination benefits, etc.
►
Making arrangements for office closure and fixtures
►
Arrangements with hospitals and clinics
►
Advising CPSO, OMA, etc.
What To Do With My Corporation?
Two scenarios:
1. Primary purpose of corporation has been income
splitting.
If so, it is unlikely that there will be any future income splitting
(fully retired), and the corporation has minimal assets.
2. Purpose of corporation has been to build capital
for retirement.
If so, there could be:
a) Opportunity for income splitting in retirement
b) Non-liquid corporate assets
c) Corporation may have a role to play in your estate
planning.
Corporation Wind-up
You will need to:
►
Liquidate all corporate holdings
►
Pay out all final expenses, taxes and equity
►
File final tax return and notify CRA
►
Close all bank and investment accounts
Continuing Corporation
►
►
►
Lawyer must conduct a name change. “Medicine
professional” can no longer be in the name.
You may wish to amend share structure. Talk to your
MD Advisor, accountant and lawyer about this first to
ensure you understand the impact of changes.
No longer need to renew your Certificate of
Authorization.
