"I was always so proud of being self employed and successfully running my own business.  I never thought it would result in a nightmare trying to get financing for my home purchase.  After losing my first offer on a home due to financing issues, my real esate agent referred me to Claire Drage.  She explained everythng to me immediately,and had me provide all docs to her first.  After she reviewed them she explained my options (on a Thursday evening at 8 pm!) and within a week I had picked out a new home and Claire had me approved!  If you are self employed, avoid your bank!  Use Claire!"

# Corporations

The business can own assets, enter into contracts and conduct business transactions in its own capacity. The company is called limited because the liability of the shareholders is limited to their investment. All provincial Corporations must obtain articles of incorporation from the province in which they are registered or may be federally incorporated. The applicant's personal income will be reported by T4 from the corporation.
