Corporate Laws


Unlimited liability companies (ULCs) are a highly effective corporate mechanisms for foreign companies (in particular those in the United States) to effectively operate in Canada and repatriate funds invested into the acquisition and/or operation of their Canadian subsidiary. The tax and withholding benefits associated with an unlimited liability company is made possible due to the unlimited liability that its shareholders assume, such that the ULC is treated as a flow-through entity for purposes of the foreign jurisdiction. This in turn has the potential the result in a number of legal advantages when appropriately structured and it is capable of being capitalized upon, including: potential reductions in taxes and withholding, more effective flowing through of losses realized in Canada to foreign shareholders, repatriation of foreign funds utilized by the Canadian ULC, together with having benefits as it pertains to transfer pricing and U.S. controlled foreign corporation rules.

Yet, as with every corporate structure, it needs be properly conceived and implemented so as to optimize your business objectives and maximize profits (hence legally defer and minimize taxes). So whether it shall be an Alberta ULC, a British Columbia ULC or another corporate entity (i.e., a limited corporation), you need to attain the appropriate legal advice and direction to make the optimal business decision.
