Advantages of Federal Incorporation

Expert: CO Staff

Sam asked:

My brother is planning to transfer the company that he has registered and incorporated a couple of years ago in Calgary (Alberta), to me. Could you tell me what needs to be done, please?

CO Staff answered:

We'd like to refer you to the Canadian Legal Guide for Small Business published by the Self-Counsel Press. On page 32, it discusses the advantages of incorporating a company federally rather than provincially. One of the advantages of federal incorporation is that it allows a company to engage in business anywhere in Canada without having to register the company in individual provinces. This is something that you might like to investigate further.
