A Dentistry Professional Corporation (DPC) is a type of corporation that is specifically designed for dentists in Ontario. It is a legal entity that allows dentists to incorporate their practices and provides certain benefits, such as limited liability protection, tax advantages, and professional status. Limited liability protection means that the personal assets of the dentist are protected from business-related lawsuits and debts. Tax advantages include income splitting, tax deferral, and access to the small business deduction. Incorporating as a DPC can also enhance a dentist’s professional status and credibility with patients, colleagues, and regulatory bodies. However, setting up a DPC is a complex process that requires compliance with specific legal and regulatory requirements in Ontario.
That’s why it’s essential to have a lawyer who is knowledgeable in this area to help guide you through the process. A lawyer can assist with the incorporation process, including filing the necessary paperwork with the Ontario government, drafting articles of incorporation, and preparing corporate bylaws. They can also advise on the tax advantages of incorporating as a DPC and help structure the corporation to maximize these advantages. Additionally, a lawyer can ensure that the DPC complies with all applicable laws and regulations, provide advice on liability protection, and draft employment and independent contractor agreements that comply with Ontario laws and protect the interests of the DPC. In conclusion, incorporating as a DPC can provide significant benefits for dentists, and a lawyer can help ensure a smooth and compliant incorporation process.
