This webinar is being presented by Erin Swint, CPA,CA of Squire & Company.

Erin heads Squire and Company’s income tax planning practice with a focus on providing strategic results to help clients reach their goals - whether the goal is 

-        the transition of the business to the next generation,

-        a tax efficient and effective expansion, 

-        a simplified corporate structure with the aim to effectively use losses within a corporate group,

-        the purchase and sale of a business.  

She works closely with her client’s other trusted advisors to make the tax planning and structuring process as easy and painless as possible.

Moving back to the Fraser Valley, after articling at a prestigious mid-size firm in Vancouver where she was exposed to a wide range of clients from the Mom and Pop grocery stores to biotech firms and manufacturers and processors, was a strategic decision to allow her to follow her roots back to the Fraser Valley where she now provides tax advice to owner managed businesses.

To that end Erin joined what is now a national firm.  There she became a Canadian Income Tax Specialist focused on the needs of businesses, individuals and trusts by completing Parts I, II and III of the CICA In-Depth Income Tax Course.  Her work at that firm included the active involvement in numerous corporate reorganizations designed to effectively manage income tax exposure of organizations and their key individuals.

Erin is very active in her profession as the founding member of the Fraser Valley Tax Technical Group, the past President of the Fraser Valley Chartered Accountants Association, a member of the Estate Planning Council of Abbotsford, and a presenter at the Canadian Tax Foundation 2018 BC Tax conference.
