Innovative Workplace Benefits
We understand that group insurance benefits represent a significant financial obligation to the employer (plan sponsor) while playing an important role in the retention of talent in providing for the well-being of employees and their families. We appreciate that each plan sponsor has unique objectives. Recognizing this diversity, we strive to find creative and flexible solutions and are committed to ensuring that plan sponsors get the best value for their benefit dollar. As independently licensed brokers, we competitively negotiate terms with virtually all insurance wholesalers and work for our clients directly, not the insurance company. This enables us to make truly objective recommendations to our clients that put their needs first. Over 90% of our clients do not require a carrier change and usually save up to 30% working with us!

Customer Service - Expense Control (A key performance metric.) Expense Control Pricing (ECP) is a unique underwriting methodology offered exclusively. ECP was developed to allow employers to identify and stabilize specific costs in their Benefits program. The costs of providing administration, adjudication, and consulting services generally do not increase at the same pace as Health and Dental premiums so by delinking those expenses from usage increases, ECP provides long-term cost savings.
b: Business Overdrive for over 50 employees includes all of the above and much more which is designed and fully customized through our consultation process.
Private Health Services Plan for the self-employed allows businesses to reimburse qualifying medical and dental expense to employees and business owners. Medical expenses reimbursed through the Private Health Services Plan (PHSP) are a 100% tax free benefit to the employee as well as 100% tax deductible to the business. The best part – businesses only pay for what is being used as there are no monthly premiums! Essentially, A PHSP is a CRA approved health and welfare trust that allows corporations and self-employed individuals to provide health, dental and vision benefits to employees and their dependents on a tax free basis while entitling the employer to a deductible business expense equal to the amount paid out as claims plus administration costs related to the PHSP.

A buyout or buy-sell agreement sets out the terms under which the interest of the departing shareholder will be sold.
Funding a Buyout Agreement
Contrary to popular belief, a buy-sell agreement is not about buying and selling companies. It is a binding contract between business partners about the future ownership of the business. Many new partners neglect to make a buyout, or buy-sell, agreement, but they are critical to protect your investment in a partnership. When you create buyout provisions for your partnership agreement, you and your partners will be prepared if one partner wants to retire and leave the business, or worse, gets seriously ill, dies, goes bankrupt, or gets divorced.
A buyout agreement sets out the terms under which the interest of the departing shareholder will be sold. It also contains provisions for the transfer of ownership when you retire. As well, if properly funded, the shareholder’s family will receive fair market value for the shares, providing them with capital to help maintain their standard of living. Your buyout agreement will instruct and remind you and your partners how you have agreed to handle the sale or buyback of an ownership interest when one partner's circumstances change. Without one, your partnership might, by law, be dissolved, forcing you to divide any assets and profits among the partners and decide whether to start a new partnership with the remaining partners. Even if your partnership doesn't end, you may still have an argument over whether you should buy out the departing partner's ownership interest, and for how much. If you don't anticipate and plan for circumstances like these, you risk serious personal and business discord -- perhaps even court battles and the loss of your business.
The most cost-effective method to fund a buyout agreement, in the case of the death of a shareholder, is through life insurance. This approach helps ensure the required amount of capital will be available at the time it is needed should it become necessary to buy out an interest in your business.
