Formerly: MFA™-Business Services Specialist Program
There has never been a more important time to provide specific and highly qualified business tax knowledge to your clients. New and complex tax rules
relating to income splitting and investment strategies for private family businesses are complex and potentially very expensive. Your small business client has most certainly acquired new tax audit risk.
Who should take it? Advisors who want to help their clients better understand insurance and investment decisions required because of the new tax rules. This specialized training will not only help you work with increased professionalism with your clients’ accountants and legal advisors, but, you will be better equipped to answer the question: should I invest inside or outside of my corporate structures.

“My new MFA designation is a great talking point with clients and prospects. It shows that I am continuing to learn and grow as an advisor which ultimately adds to their confidence in the quality of advice they receive. I have found that the new designation also increases the frequency and quality of referrals. The MFA program is thorough, leading edge and fun. The combination of the written journal with the audio CD and the on-line tools is a great way to absorb and adopt more complex concepts and solutions.”
