Unlike other self-employed professionals in Ontario, real estate salespeople cannot legally incorporate their business without becoming the “Broker of Record” and opening their own brokerage.

This legislated restriction removes the various tax advantages of incorporation from the reach of many realtors that would otherwise enjoy significant savings in the taxes they pay.

The only legal option is to open their own real estate brokerage.

Of course, this course of action opens ...
