Incorporation of physicians

Incorporating a company means bringing your project to life by creating a legal entity separate from you. This approach limits your financial and legal risks by separating the company’s assets from your personal property. What’s more, it offers better financing opportunities and the possibility of benefiting from tax benefits. The incorporation of physicians in Quebec, on the other hand, is slightly different, representing a crucial step in the optimization of their professional practice.


This article delves into the motivations behind this process and highlights the advantages offered by Lexstart, a reference choice for healthcare professionals.

I. Incorporation of physicians in Quebec

Physicians incorporation in Quebec is a common financial practice that enables healthcare professionals to structure their business activities while benefiting from tax benefits. By incorporating their practice, physicians can separate their professional income from their personal income, thereby reducing their overall tax rate. In addition, being incorporated protects against creditors and enables better estate planning.


However, it is essential that physicians understand the legal and tax requirements associated with incorporation, as well as the limitations of this strategy. Indeed, it is important to recognize any limitations or restrictions that may exist in using incorporation as a financial strategy. This may include aspects such as specific tax rules, corporate governance conditions, or other considerations.

By carefully navigating this incorporation process, physicians can optimize their financial situation while focusing on delivering quality care to their patients.


Let’s return to the tax benefits available to physicians when they incorporate in Quebec. Incorporation offers a range of significant tax benefits for physicians in Quebec. By structuring their practice as a business corporation, these healthcare professionals can benefit from a reduction in their overall tax rate.


Indeed, unlike personal income, professional income generated by the corporation may be subject to a lower tax rate, enabling physicians and other healthcare professionals to retain a larger share of their earnings. In addition, incorporation allows practitioners to defer taxes by retaining a portion of profits in the company, which can be advantageous for the future growth and development of their practice.


This structure also allows for more astute tax planning, such as sharing income with family or using different payment methods to obtain greater tax benefits. It is also possible to structure the medical corporation with a management company and/or a family trust. The doctor will need to discuss this with their wealth manager or tax advisor to determine the optimum structure.

In addition, incorporation offers flexibility in the deduction of professional expenses, as well as access to certain tax credits reserved for corporations. In short, incorporation offers attractive tax benefits that can help healthcare professionals maximize their income while complying with tax obligations.
