Canada: dynamic and prosperous

A strong growth record and unparalleled market access

Why Canada?

It’s easy to understand why Canada is an attractive market for companies looking to invest overseas – it has abundant resources spread across the country, and enjoys a consistently stable political environment. Its welcoming business environment – the second-best country in the G20 to do business, according to Forbes – and highly-educated workforce make it a great place to invest, work and live.

With a low corporate tax rate and trade agreements with key markets within the United States, Latin America and Europe, Canada is well positioned as a base of operations and a target for international expansion. Its competitive R&D environment and financial stability keep it driving innovation.

Our core areas of expertise

We’ve been operating in Canada for 30 successful years as a leading provider in global business services, so we know this market intimately.

As part of a worldwide group, TMF Canada helps corporations keep compliant with local regulations and filings, and has helped many businesses large and small set up in Canada with speed, safety and efficiency. We have local experts providing accounting, corporate secretarial, international corporate structuring, legal administration, and HR and payroll services to companies of all sizes.

Understanding local law, regulations, processes and requirements is at the heart of what we do. From whatever country you are in, our wholly-owned and independent offices across the globe can help launch your entry into the Canadian market, helping you control costs, reduce risk and simplify multi-jurisdiction operations.

  • Accounting and Tax services: We take care of local statutory bookkeeping, full consolidated accounts and management reporting to relevant local and international standards. We also help you manage your tax and reporting obligations.
  • Capital Markets services: We provide support to capital market transactions at local level and on a global scale. We help to manage and administer a wide range of transactions, from a complex multi-tranche securitization to a project finance transaction or a syndicated loan. We can also help direct lenders in need of support to administer their loan portfolio.
  • Global Entity Management services: We provide support at every stage of your business lifecycle. Our multi-disciplinary expertise - in corporate secretarial, regulatory compliance, fiduciary services and more - is your outsourced answer to managing and maintaining entities across borders.

Local Services

As a leading provider in Canada for several decades, TMF Group provides many local-specific services alongside the global offering. Our local experts ensure you stay up-to-date with market and legislative developments.

TMF Canada had a significant step in expansion of operations with the acquisition of Corp (“OnPayroll”), one of Canada’s leading providers of HR and Payroll services. Headquartered in Vancouver, OnPayroll, which is being rebranded as TMF Canada Payroll Inc., specialises in providing outsourced payroll and human resources services to international companies with employees working in Canada.

The acquisition of OnPayroll expands TMF Group’s coverage to the West Coast of North America, which offers an important link to TMF Group’s Asia Pacific business. This builds scope and scale for payroll services in Canada, incorporating a team of skilled payroll employees with experience of the local and US market.
