Canada’s forestry and forest products industry is a major part of our nation’s economy – contributing nearly 2% to the GDP. While this sector has seen higher-than-average labour productivity gains, it’s also an increasingly challenging industry, with operational, trade, environmental and regulatory requirements constantly being introduced.
Whether you run a logging company, manufacture wood products or have a pulp and paper operation, you need to be able to respond to these changes without compromising your business goals. We have deep roots in the forestry sector and can help you develop and implement strategies to improve your financial position, streamline your operations and increase your confidence with every business decision you make.
We work with private and public forestry companies to provide all levels of assurance, as well as specialty assurance services, financial projections and forecasts, internal control assessments and performance measurement.
Assurance and Accounting Services
In the forestry and forest products industry, every dollar counts. We help provide a clear picture of your current financial state, while identifying internal efficiencies and controls to streamline your financial reporting efforts and grow your bottom line. Where an assurance engagement isn’t needed, we can also provide accounting and bookkeeping services, including monthly assistance with data entry and reconciliations, accounting and payroll software conversions and training on year-end financial statement preparation.
We provide assistance on a wide range of areas that matter to forestry companies, including strategic planning, policy analysis, forest economics and more.
Get help with the business concerns that matter the most to you, including strategic planning, policy analysis, forest economics and finance, program evaluation, business performance improvement and forest certification. Our management consultants have deep roots in the forestry industry and can provide you with a wealth of knowledge, as well as insightful ideas and solutions.
Whether you’re looking to expand through a merger, acquisition or capital raising or you’re considering divesting a business or asset, our corporate finance professionals help you determine optimal financing structures, access the right capital and get the information you need to make sound business decisions.
Corporate Finance Services
Protect the legacy and business you’ve worked so hard to build. Whether transitioning to a family member, employee or outside buyer, we offer the most comprehensive succession planning program on the market.
We monitor new tax incentives and standards that will impact your forestry business to maximize the effectiveness of your tax structure and allow you to grow your bottom line.
Ensure your business is structured effectively and get ongoing tax planning assistance to address current and future taxation issues. We help with personal and corporate tax planning, obtaining the Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) tax credit, international tax, indirect tax, tax risk, and transaction tax.
