2. Family budget
3. Savings and retirement plan

Clients who purchase a comprehensive plan often return for a 2-3 hour consultation to monitor their progress on an annual basis.
Comprehensive tax and estate plan – ($3,000 plus HST and up): This type of plan typically involves gathering details on a family’s current and projected financial situations, estimating tax liability at death, and designing a plan to lower taxation and mitigate the risks of transferring wealth to an estate’s beneficiaries. Mock tax returns are produced to estimate taxation at death and an extensive questionnaire and interview are conducted to ensure the client’s needs are met.

Life insurance is considered when deemed financially beneficial but alternative strategies are always explored.
