Small business reaction to 2013 Ontario Budget

T

he Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) is pleased to see movement on some

small business priorities in the recent Ontario budget, including pooled registered pension plans (PRPPs), the Employer Health Tax (EHT) exemption and plans to eliminate the provincial deficit. Features of the budget that CFIB advocated for on behalf of small business: Pooled registered pension plans (PRPP): CFIB applauds the government for choosing to move forward with public consultations on PRPP legislation. This would be a cost-effective way of giving Ontarians the opportunity to save for their retirement. “By making a commitment to introduce PRPPs the government is listening to the concerns of small businesses,” said CFIB’s Ontario vice president Satinder Chera. “This step will reduce the pressure to impose more costly and ill-advised measures on employers and their employees.” EHT exemption threshold: The government has increased the EHT exemption to $450,000 and indexed it to inflation going forward. “This modest tax relief is an important

acknowledgement of the serious impact that payroll taxes have on creating jobs and growing a small business,” said Chera. “We look forward to working with the government to enlarge and accelerate this tax relief as part of its upcoming review of business support programs and refundable tax credits.” Deficit reduction: Spending growth in 2012 came in under 1 per cent as recommended by the Drummond Commission and the government recommitted to balancing the budget by 2017/18. “While the government, with the support of the opposition, has taken important steps to curb spending, eliminating the deficit will require more structural changes including reforms to the arbitration system and public sector wages and benefits,” noted CFIB’s Ontario director Plamen Petkov. CFIB is disappointed that steps were not taken to address other and equally important concerns from the small business community. The following issues also deserve immediate attention: Reducing workers compensation payroll taxes by repealing Bill 119 and eliminating the unsustainable “cash-for-life” (72 month lock-in) provisions; and Keeping more skilled workers in Ontario by immediately reducing apprenticeship ratios. CFIB also notes concern over new eligibility rules for the EHT, continued discussion about the need for new sources of revenue to pay for public infrastructure projects, and reviewing the need to increase the minimum wage even further. “It will be important for CFIB to gauge the reaction from small businesses to these developments,” said Petkov. “The last thing anyone wants to see is some of the gains made by small business in today’s budget offset by these potentially costly decisions down the road.”

Survey shows restaurateurs optimistic for sizzling summer sales “With the bad weather behind us, restaurant operators are feeling more positive about business in the coming months,” says Garth Whyte, CRFA President and CEO.“As a result, restaurateurs will be on a bit of a hiring spree - 27 per cent plan to hire more employees over the next six months, up from 16 per cent in Q4 of 2012. As students get off school for the summer, this means more youth jobs in the restaurant industry, which has positive ripple effect, socially and economically, in communities across the country.” Only 19 per cent of respondents expect a slowdown in sales in the next six months, and the remaining 47 per cent expect sales to grow at a steady pace. Survey highlights Despite the optimistic outlook, restaurateurs had their share of struggles in Q1 of 2013. According to the survey: 67 per cent of operators cited rising food costs as their number one concern, even though food prices have recently moderated; 48 per cent noted rising labour costs impacted business;

Making social capital work for you

n today’s world of business development, social capital is evolving and has become the currency of networking. Dominik Loncar,

Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the Canadian Youth Business Foundation (cybf.ca), recommends the following steps to generate a vital source of social capital: • Call your clients. Don’t forget the value of a personal phone call in the age of all things digital. Follow up on a service you provided, or a project you took part in, to show you care about the outcome, but do not ask for referrals at this point. • Contact the people who referred your business. Find out how they, and their businesses, are doing in order to learn more about their offerings so you can return the favour and pass business along to them.

• Target 40 to 50 people to remain in contact with. This should include people who did business with you in the past six to 12 months, and other potential clients you’ve recently made connections with. Send a personalized card in the mail about your appreciation for their business, or thanking them for connecting with you. • Follow up. Approximately two weeks after you’ve mailed your cards follow up with a phone call. If it’s a past client, now is the appropriate time to ask for that referral. If you’re speaking with a potential client, take this opportunity to set up a face-to-face meeting to gain new business. Remember that improving your social capital isn’t about the number of contacts you make, Loncar points out, but rather about turning those contacts into lasting and meaningful business relationships. -NC

BMO Blue Book Ont. : U.S. Growth to Drive Momentum in Ontario Economic conditions drive manufacturing companies to cut costs and improve productivity GDP growth of 1.5 per cent expected in 2013, 2.3 per cent in 2014; Canada GDP growth expected to be 1.6 per cent in 2013, 2.3 per cent in 2014

T

he Ontario economy is expected to grow 1.5 per cent in 2013 but pick up later in the year once

U.S. economic growth improves, according to the BMO Blue Book released recently by BMO Capital Markets Economics and BMO Commercial Banking. Much like the U.S. Federal Reserve’s Beige Book, the BMO Blue Book combines the expertise of BMO’s economists with information on current business conditions provided to BMO’s commercial bankers by local businesspeople. “Once the U.S. economy begins to run at a three per cent-plus clip later this year Ontario will see momentum pick up,” said Robert Kavcic, Senior Economist, BMO Capital Markets.“With such a direct benefit to the Ontario economy, we expect growth to reach 2.3 per cent in 2014.”

Susan Brown, senior vice president, Ontario Division, BMO Bank of Montreal noted that manufacturing clients have seen success by cutting costs and focusing on productivity during the economic downturn.“Pressure from the relatively high Canadian dollar is a continuing concern, reinforcing the ongoing importance for firms to improve their productivity. We encourage manufacturers to take advantage of low interest rates to invest in their businesses, as we expect a positive environment to continue.” Mike Bonner, vice president, Commercial Banking, GTA Division, BMO Bank of Montreal, said that his clients are optimistic, but wary of a fragile economic recovery going forward.“Businesses have chosen to invest in opportunities that diversify their market share, whether those are new business ventures or adding to their existing clientele. This expansion, both horizontally and vertically, has driven modest growth across the Greater Toronto Area.” Mr. Bonner added that BMO is armed with a highly-skilled team of experts that can make lending decisions at the local level to help its commercial clients boost productivity, expand into new markets and make strategic investment decisions that will help propel growth and drive success.

WHERE TO INVEST? REAL ESTATE OR STOCKS? By Dino Nicosia, Broker Of Record,

Investpro Realty and Appraisal Ltd.

Hamilton

In recent months, there’s been a lot of debate as to whether to invest in Stocks or buy Real Estate as a safe hedge against inflation and to build wealth. Given the current predictions of a drop in property prices, and the unpredictable Stock market, I still maintain Real Estate will continue to be the better choice. To prove that Real Estate will still be a smart investment decision, let’s examine the potential of both. We have all heard of the many riches that both Real Estate ownership and the Stock market can bring, but unfortunately we also have heard of the horror stories from both types of investments that had gone terribly bad. As you are probably aware, the stock market can fluctuate dramatically and you have little control on what happens to your investment. You pray and hope that your stocks do not plummet because of bad news migrating from some foreign country, or another Ponzi scheme creating havoc in the market. Make no mistake, we have witnessed overnight swings that had made people rich in the Stock market; however we have also seen in other cases sending investors to bankruptcy. We know that Real Estate owners are not shielded from such peaks and valleys, exemplified by the boom of the late 1980’s and the subsequent recession in the early 1990’s. However, it is important to note that the swings in Real Estate are more predictable and not as severe. More importantly you have more control on the investment. In addition, Real Estate investment is unique from the Stock market because real wealth is achieved by using leverage. As an example, with leverage an investor could buy a real estate asset worth $1,000,000.00 with as little as a $100,000.00 investment. You cannot use this leverage with stocks. With stocks you are basically buying dollar for dollar. One of the greatest benefits to Real Estate investing is that it’s probably one of the more accessible ways to invest using borrowed money. So often I hear people say they don’t like borrowing because they believe that being in debt depletes their personal net worth. This is true; consumer debt-loans to pay for a car, a vacation, or other non-investing debt, will be a burden on a person’s potential net worth. However it’s not in the same category as an asset-backed debt. Asset-backed debt-loans secured by a potentially appreciating asset, such as real property, can be a great way to use leverage to increase a person’s net worth. Also keep in mind the cost of interest on the loan used to invest, is tax deductible. In my view, borrowing to buy Real Estate makes for a good, long term investment strategy. A great example of that benefit is that a house in Burlington

Ontario (30 minutes West of Toronto) in 1980 sold for $100,000.00. Today that same home is worth over $600,000.00. That is tax a free gain as a residential home, or a capital gain as an investment property. History shows that buying an investment type of Real Estate will over time build wealth. An experienced investor is able to buy on short term and by flipping properties will earn good profits as well. However that is a high-risk strategy. What I am promoting is a longer-term investment plan. Great wealth is generally achieved by long term holdings and allowing the equity to grow. When buying Real Estate, the best way investors can avoid risk is to focus on cash-flow positive properties. That means the rental income covers all your expenses, including the mortgage, taxes, insurance, maintenance, repairs and a contingency fund; and have extra cash at the end of the month. That way your property will be making money for you whether real estate prices go up or down-so hopefully, you’ll never be forced to sell in a down market. The following are some of the many advantages in a long-term real estate investment plan which will build your retirement nest egg. • Building Net Worth over time from capital appreciation

a) Are you prepared and do you have the energy, to devote as much time as necessary to looking after your investment? Unlike Stocks, you have to be more involved on daily basis. b) Do you have enough retirement savings and investments to retire comfortably without such real estate investments? c) Are you going to be able to send your children to university, with your present income and net worth? d) Since real estate is not liquid, is liquidity a concern for you? Stocks or Real Estate? I say “Can you afford not to buy Real Estate?”

Get a leg up in business by finding your niche

art of being an entrepreneur is having the ability to innovate and to adapt to changes in the marketplace, particularly when it comes to understanding the demographics of your target market. You bring ideas to life by offering new products and services, or by delivering them in new ways.

As with any major undertaking, you’ll want to do your research first to determine which group of people you want to reach and how you will accomplish that. Consider the following: • Is there a group of potential customers with similar wants or needs? • Is the market big enough to support my business? • Who is my competition, and are they currently serving that same market? • Can I adapt my products and services to address the market’s needs, and still be profitable?

The best way to learn more about a market segment is by talking to the people who belong to it to find out firsthand what they want. Let’s say you work in the health care field and have learned that a growing number of people are looking for mobile services, or personalized care inside the home. You might decide to expand your offerings, or start a new business, aimed at meeting a particular set of needs for this niche. If you keep an eye on emerging social trends, or changes in demographics like an aging population, you can get in on the ground floor, or adapt accordingly. Once you’ve determined your target market, you can focus on adjusting or developing your marketing plan. You’ve heard what the market has to say; now it’s your turn to reach out to them. Think about the language you use, and the way you present yourself to them. Do test marketing and seek feedback. You can also start your research with free business services by contacting the Business Info Line (1-888-745-8888) and accessing the Canada Business Network website canadabusiness.gc.ca for more business information.

“One or two negative quarters spread among a string of positive quarterly results over the past couple of years is not alarming. However, those of us who track the market will be monitoring it a little more closely as we move into the summer months and second half of the year. In all, market fundamentals remain intact.”

opening quarter of 2013 –

understandable, given the market’s resilient pace during and since the recession. Losses outpaced gains in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) office sector, leaving the leasing market’s overall performance in the red. Absorption turned negative, causing a modest rise in vacancy levels in some markets and building classes across the region’s sprawling 170 million square feet (msf). These are some of the key trends noted in Avison Young’s First Quarter 2013 Greater Toronto Area Office Market Report, released recently. “Despite the less-than-stellar performance turned in by the GTA office leasing market to start 2013, we really should consider ourselves fortunate that we are not still

According to the first-quarter report, the overall vacancy rate (physically unoccupied space) for class A, B and C office space across the GTA increased a modest 10 basis point (bps) from year-end 2012 to close the first quarter of 2013 at 8.1 per cent. The overall availability rate (which includes space being marketed for lease) increased a similar amount and rests 140 bps higher at 9.5 per cent. Notwithstanding the nominal increase, vacancy and availability remain 30 and 20 bps lower, respectively, than during the same quarter one year ago. Of the scores of construction cranes that dot the Toronto skyline, most are engaged in highrise residential projects. Amidst this development there is also vibrant office construction, with 26 projects underway comprising 6.2 msf – of which 47 per cent is preleased. The overwhelming majority (4.4 msf or 71 per cent, with 45 per cent preleased) is located in the downtown market. Argeropoulos continues: “Given that we built 4.5 msf between 2009 and 2012 in Downtown Toronto during what turned out to be the worst economic down cycle, our market performed better than expected, with those projects now 97 per cent leased and only small remnants of the back-fill space lingering on the market. In light of this situation, the question on everyone’s mind is: Can the market absorb that much space again so soon after the previous development cycle, and how long will the residual vacancy persist?” The report goes on to say that the vacancy rate in Downtown Toronto increased 30 bps to close the first quarter of 2013 at an even five per cent – up from 4.7 per cent at year-end 2012. Office space returned to the market in all building classes, with losses heaviest in class A and concentrated largely in the Downtown West node. As a result of ongoing consolidation and/or relocation of tenants in the marketplace, the sublet market has

inthenews grown approximately 100,000 sf during the past year and accounts for 17 per cent of the total available space – up from 14 per cent one year ago. Despite the slight increase in vacancy, the market remains tight, giving landlords the leverage to push rental rates higher, especially in the financial core. “The anticipated announcement from Oxford Properties regarding its 100 Adelaide Street West project – with one or perhaps two tenants anchoring the development – will bring total space under construction to approximately 5.3 msf,” adds Argeropoulos.“Our research shows that, since mid- 2011, there has been a steady increase in the pool of prospects who will be seeking premises during the next three to four years. This includes large-block tenants amounting to approximately six per cent of the existing

downtown stock. Interestingly, paralleling this statistic, office space currently under construction as a percentage of the existing downtown inventory is slightly greater than six per cent.” “At a macro level, this implies sufficient tenant demand to fill the new buildings; however, some of these tenants may just end up renewing or relocating in the limited existing large-block opportunities. Although a number of large tenants have inked deals to kick-start these projects, there may be challenges ahead as the new buildings will be competing for a dwindling pool of tenants to complete the lease-up of the space. The pace of leasing in new buildings may be somewhat slower this time around,” he says. Turning to Toronto’s suburban office market (comprising almost 84 msf or roughly half of the GTA inventory), vacancy and availability levels, which fell at the end of 2012, rose by 30 and 40 bps, respectively, during the first quarter of 2013. Modest expansion in Toronto East was balanced by a contraction in Toronto North, while Toronto West (the most active of the suburban markets a year ago) saw the most notable decline in occupied Continued on Page 46 space.

Why do I need a lawyer to buy a franchise? By Konstantine Chatzidimos and Jayson Schwarz

W

hat is a franchise? A “franchise” is a legal structure where a “franchisor” grants to a “franchisee” the right to use a trade name, trademark and can include a business methodology in association with the running of a particular business. Franchise arrangements are quite common in the retail and restaurant sectors of the economy but can be found in virtually all segments. In exchange for the right to use the franchisor’s trade name or trademark and following their guidelines, the franchisee typically pays the franchisor an initial franchise fee plus ongoing royalty payments linked to the gross sales of the franchised business. Due diligence Many prospective franchisees believe that since a particular franchise may have been around for a while less research, investigation or even business knowledge are required on their part when considering this type of investment. They will hear the “turn-key operation” and put their financial suspicions to rest. The Canadian Franchise Association implores prospective franchise purchasers to “investigate before investing.” In Ontario, legislation requires franchisors to provide 14G COM

prospective franchisees a Disclosure Document at least 14 days before they sign any agreement or pay any money to the franchisor. This Disclosure Document is supposed to furnish prospective franchisees with detail regarding the franchise they wish to purchase. It is imperative that prospective franchisees review the complete Disclosure Document, and any schedules, with a commercial lawyer experienced in this area of the law. An experienced lawyer will determine whether the disclosure provided satisfies the franchisor’s obligations under the law. Too often clients have retained us to close the purchase of their new franchise well after signing the franchise agreement. You have to read the complete Disclosure Document to understand what you are buying. You are going to get financial statements with the Disclosure document so you will need a chartered accountant to review those as well to ensure you are not buying “a pig in a poke.” If you need a referral your lawyer can certainly help you. The Franchise Agreement Included with the Disclosure Document should be a copy of the draft Franchise Agreement. I refer to it as a “draft” because normally there is some negotiation ‘wiggle’ room. It is imperative that the 14-day window is taken advantage of and you address any issues in the Franchise Agreement at that time. Here are some things to watch for that ordinarily are points of contention: the franchise fee; royalty rates; pricing of products that have to be bought from the franchisor; training (if any), territory: exclusivity; degree of control by franchisor over operation of the business and term of the agreement. Ensure you are comfortable with the degree and scale of any such “big-brothering” exacted by the franchisor. Be aware, however, that franchisors pay hefty legal fees to draft their standard form Franchise Agreements and, as a consequence, typically do not want to change anything. Thus, it is best to select a handful of issues for negotiation instead of nit-picking on every second or third line; choose your battles. Conclusion There are a host of issues to be addressed when purchasing a franchised business however the new legislation passed has made it easier for prospective franchisors to make more informed decisions. The thing is the prospective franchisee has to take the step to become informed. Perhaps the most difficult part of writing these articles relates not to the actual writing, but thinking of a topic to address. Please mail, deliver or fax letters to the magazine or to us, use the website (www.schwarzlaw.ca), email (schwarz@schwarzlaw.ca), or phone us at 1-888-609-8888 and give us your questions, concerns, critiques and quandaries. We will try to deal with them in print or electronic form.

Small businesses get new “hot line” to regulators

T

he Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) applauds the Ontario government for launching a new online tool to allow small businesses to submit their concerns and obtain written responses from provincial ministries on regulatory requirements impacting their business. The online feedback form was one of five measures that were developed jointly between CFIB and the Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Employment in 2012 following roundtable discussions with small business owners to address their red tape headaches. “Small business owners tell us that government regulations and paper-burden are one of the biggest challenges they face to running their business” said CFIB’s Ontario director Plamen Petkov. “This online tool will give small business a dedicated hot line to speak directly to government about specific red tape examples that are making it difficult for them to run their business.” 16G

The online feedback form builds on the government’s one-window approach for business to access government services. Government ministries will have 15 business days to respond to business owners in writing and the form is now available on the following site: http://www.ontariocanada.com/registry/contact_us.do “Our government is proud to be working with CFIB to reduce the regulatory burden on business. This new online tool will improve the way we serve small business and will help us learn about new ways to make government interactions with business faster, smarter, and easier” said Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Economic Development, Trade and Employment. CFIB looks forward to working with the government to fully implement the five-point action plan to reduce the red tape burden on small business: ~ Improve customer service by giving small business an online resource to obtain time-sensitive information on requirements mandated by government ministries ~ Reduce the amount of paperwork imposed on small businesses. Ontario’s workers’ compensation board has nearly completed this process ~ Streamline the government procurement process to give small businesses a fair chance to compete for government contracts ~ Improve the current system of measuring and publicly reporting the regulatory burden; and ~ Regularly review specific requirements that are imposed by government “Minister Hoskins deserves credit for working quickly to implement the remaining elements of the plan to reduce the red tape burden on small business,” added CFIB’s Ontario policy analyst Nicole Troster. “The online form is an important step forward to improving regulatory accountability in government.” CFIB is Canada’s largest association of small and medium-sized businesses with 109,000 members across every sector and region.

Setting up a home office that fuels productivity

O

ne of the biggest mistakes businesspeople make is assuming that working from home will automatically result in a higher level of productivity. Unless you carefully construct your home office environment, you may find that working from home is less productive than you anticipated.

Staples, the world’s largest office products company and a trusted source for office solutions, offer the following tips for setting up your home office to help maximize your productivity. The ideal working environment Home office setup is an exercise in knowing yourself. Before you make any decisions, make a list of the things you need to spur productivity. Some people can work at a desk in a common area of the house with the television running in the background. Others want a closed-door environment where distractions are minimized. For some people, a home office is a place to finish up work from a regular day job. For others, a home office is a primary workspace where they spend eight or more hours of the day. Before you start rearranging the furniture, decide what you need as an absolute minimum to encourage you to use the space as intended. The right office furniture, equipment and supplies Once you have decided whether you’re going to segregate an area of the living room, convert a spare bedroom or set yourself up 20G

in the basement or garage, you should start thinking about home office furniture. The type of office furniture you pick and the way you organize your space will significantly impact your productivity. Whatever your preferences are, investing money up front in the style of office furniture that makes you comfortable will naturally lead to greater productivity. At the very least, this ensures that you won’t be tempted to relocate to the bedroom instead of working at your desk. Likewise, an upfront investment in office supplies and equipment will help you get your work done faster and avoid distractions. The cost of outfitting a home office A basic home office setup can cost you under $500 if you already have a computer that you can relocate to your new space. There are a number of functional office furniture options that look expensive but are actually quite affordable, especially if you are willing to put the furniture together yourself. A printer and a phone with voicemail can round out a basic home office setup. A more advanced home office setup would include a fax machine and a photocopier. Fortunately, there are 3-in-1 office machines that combine a printer, fax and copier in one piece of equipment for under $300 at Staples, saving you money and space. Keep in mind, however, that a machine that does many things often offers fewer features for each specific function. For example, if your work at home requires more than the occasional photocopy, it can be more efficient to buy a dedicated copy machine that has special functionality to handle a heavier workload. Don’t forget to set aside money in your home office budget for office supplies. From paper to paper clips, you will have to buy all of the little things that you took for granted when you worked for an employer. A home office is sometimes considered the Mecca for people who work. Who wouldn’t want a comfortable home oasis where commuting is a foreign concept and the work just gets done? To achieve home office nirvana, make a plan that is specifically designed to meet your individual needs and choose the right home office furniture, equipment and supplies to make your plan a reality.

The poor results in the suburbs are attributed to a combination of factors, including new supply coming on stream (especially in Toronto West) and ongoing tenant “rightsizing”, which resulted in a 200-bps rise during the past year in the ratio of sublet available space to total available space.

Founded in 1978, Avison Young is one of Canada’s largest independently-owned commercial real estate services companies. Headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, Avison Young is also the largest Canadian- owned, principal-managed commercial real estate brokerage firm in North America. Comprising more than 1,200 real estate professionals in 45 offices across Canada and the U.S., the full-service commercial real estate company provides value-added, client-centric investment sales, leasing, advisory, management, financing and mortgage placement services to owners and occupiers of office, retail, industrial and multi-residential properties.

Uncertainty as to whether ING DIRECT Canada would renew at 111 Gordon Baker Road or consolidate at 3389 Steeles Avenue East (Steeles Technology Campus/STC) in the Highway 404 and Steeles node in Toronto East was finally resolved in the first quarter. “ING’s decision to consolidate its operations at STC under a long-term lease comprising 193,000 sf means that 111 Gordon Baker Road now offers 166,000 sf over 10 storeys – one of the largest existing blocks of contiguous office space in the suburbs – as well as a great corporate branding opportunity along the well-travelled Don Valley Parkway,” concludes Argeropoulos.

Confused about investing?

I

t seems that the old adage a penny saved is a penny earned

• Cash is liquid, which means that you can access it immediately from your bank account. It doesn’t generate much or any return because it’s available on demand.

has virtually disappeared like

actual pennies. Most of us are finding it harder and harder to save for the future. We’d sooner invest our time and money in smartphones, tablets and apps than think about dabbling in the stock market. But to be fair, sometimes money management can be pretty confusing with its jargon, acronyms and options. To help decipher the world of money,

• Fixed Income: This includes bonds (government or corporate) or guaranteed investment certificates. In exchange for lending your money to the government or private institution for a set period of time, they promise to pay you a rate of interest. • Stocks: When you buy a company stock, you are purchasing a share of the company’s profits. Your rate of return is determined two ways: 1) Stock value increases, or 2) The company will share its profits with you in the form of dividends. There is no guaranteed rate of return for stocks.

we asked Gregory Brown, associate manager with Desjardins Financial Security Independent Network (www.dfsin.ca/gregorybrown) in Surrey, British Columbia, for his guidance.

So what about RRSP, TFSA, RIF and LIRA? These aren’t investments per se, but investment vehicles that receive a preferential tax treatment, as defined by Revenue Canada. And what about Mutual Funds, Segregated Funds and Annuities? Again, these are not investments but a form of investing. Each of these investment types allow you to pool your money so that you can economically purchase several investments at once. They’re also available in different formats and offered by different types of financial institutions.

Where should we start Greg? That’s a good question and one I hear all the time: Should I open a TFSA or a RRSP? When do I need a RIF or a LIRA? What stock or bond should I buy? Or am I better off with a GIC? Then the conversation veers toward mutual funds, segregated funds and annuities. Part of this confusion is caused by conflicting messages that we receive from ads, TV programs, newspaper headlines and sometimes industry pundits. So let’s get right down to it: there really are only three investment options that beginners should think about: Cash, Fixed Income or Stocks.

The important thing, says Brown, is to learn as much as you can about cash, fixed income and stocks before you start invest. Remember to dream big and make a plan: it’s the best way to reach your goals.

Financing technology needs: A better option for businesses Entrepreneur frees up cash with IT loan

O

mar Hammoud faced a challenge most entrepreneurs would envy: how

to cope with rapidly increasing demand for his company’s products.

Hammoud is President and CEO of APGNeuros, a business that makes air turbo blowers for waste water treatment and other industrial applications. APG Neuros got off to a slow start after being founded in 2006, but then demand took off for its award-winning blowers. Last year’s sales topped $26 million, mainly in North America. The strong demand and ambitious plans to expand overseas led to growing pains. “Our limit wasn’t the number of orders,” Hammoud says, “it was our capacity to track production, manage our supply chain and schedule activities for efficient delivery to customers.” In response, Hammoud decided to upgrade the company’s basic technology. The firm purchased an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system,

a software package that could manage all facets of the business, increasing efficiency from order entry, through production and accounting to final delivery. It was a major investment and the big question was how best to pay for it. “How do you finance it? That’s always the issue,” Hammoud says. “If you use working capital to buy information technology, it reduces the cash flow you need for immediate expenses, as well as your ability to invest in expansion.” He decided the best solution was to use outside financing. He turned to the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) for a medium-term loan to pay for the ERP system. “Most banks are reluctant to finance software because it’s an intangible asset, which can’t be held as security,” he says. “However, the loan we received is giving us the time and money we need to improve management of all our processes. At the same time, it has freed up capital to develop our markets in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and South America.” “Major hardware and software investments, while risky and sometimes expensive, can build a significant competitive edge for businesses,” says Michel Bergeron, BDC’s senior vice president, Marketing and Public Affairs. “If your financial resources are stretched, you shouldn’t have to deplete your working capital to support a long-term investment.” A better option is to finance IT investments so your business can benefit from upgrades immediately but pay for them over several years. Bergeron says technology is vital for the competitiveness of both individual companies and the Canadian economy as a whole. “Canadian businesses invest about 40 per cent less in technology than their U.S. counterparts and our productivity lags by 25 to 30 per cent,” Bergeron says. “There is a direct link between the two.” NC

The “Street Smart Real Estate Appraiser” - Switch Your Hats What separates a great real estate agent from a mediocre real estate agent? Is it marketing, networking, style, experience, companies, communication, attention to detail, good looks... ahhhh; I know it’s NONE OF THE ABOVE. A great real estate agent has street smart appraisal tricks. Over 20 years I have had the pleasure of meeting and working along side hundreds of real estate brokers. What I found is generally the most successful brokers have excellent valuation skills. Simply, brokers that understand key fundamental appraisal techniques will do more deals. I think real estate agents that regularly do transactions can provide guidance to appraisers. I regularly discuss transactions with real estate agents either involved in a deal or about their view of a specific deal. Sometimes this background information is key to me forming a final value estimate or selecting the best comparable. I should talk to real estate brokers and get their “trade secrets”. The mission - become a “STREET SMART APPRAISER”!! A real estate broker valuation trick I will give you is “SWITCH YOUR HATS”! Timothy Salisbury taught me this appraisal “trade secret”. Timothy Salisbury of Royal LePage is a Broker with over 23 years of real estate sales experience. Tim has regularly achieved top ranks within his local firm and nationally I have personally known and worked with Tim my entire career. Through these years we have regularly discussed business, but before this I had not asked him for one of his trade valuation tricks. So I booked a meeting with him explaining my objective. Wow… two great suggestions in the first minute, but I will only give you one. Tim explained that every listing appointment, he and his team conduct a Comprehensive Market Analysis (CMA). From Tim’s web site (http://www.st-catharines-real-estate.com/) a Comprehensive Property Analysis is divided into three categories: 1. Similar properties that are currently listed. 2. Similar properties that have recently sold or are pending closing. 3. Similar properties that have expired and have been taken off the market. By studying the comparable property locations, features and the terms under which they are offered, we can develop a clear picture of the potential market for your property. By looking at the properties currently listed, we can see exactly what alternatives a serious buyer has to choose from. We can be certain that we are not under-pricing the property. By looking at similar properties recently sold, we can see what homeowners have actually received over the last few months. This is the ‘acid test’ that is used by lending institutions to determine how much they would be willing to lend a buyer for your home. Niagara Peninsula

Once this document has completed Tim will “Switch His Hat.” Meaning initially, the analysis to determine value is based on working for the Seller (Vendor). Now, Tim switches to the actual Buyer’s (Purchaser’s) view and asks a key question: “Would I pay $X for this house in today’s market?” Making this a personal issue is the challenge. Let’s face it… most appraisers are homeowners and they can view this advice as a final test to themselves when faced with a unique appraisal assignment.

How to plan your business’s growth Beat the competition with disciplined expansion

S

ay you have a successful small business. You have a few employees, and things are going fine. If you’re like many entrepreneurs,

you may never take time to sit down and think about your future growth – how to take your company to the next level in a smart, disciplined way. But growth is an issue many business owners ignore at their peril. In fact, it might just be one of the most important issues facing them as entrepreneurs. “If you decide not to grow, you may be paving a path to failure,” says Patrick Latour, senior vice president, Financing and Consulting at the Business Development Bank of Canada.“If you don’t grow, your competitors will, and that will put pressure on you.”

highly detailed strategic plan, including everything from a mission statement to scenario planning and financial forecasts.

The good news, Latour says, is that business owners can create a road map to guide them and reduce their risk as they grow their enterprise. The road map can help them find more growth opportunities and avoid common mistakes, like failing to delegate responsibility to employees.

Spinning Out of Control

Need a Plan To develop your road map, start by committing time to outlining a plan for your growth, Latour says. It should include a few important basics: • A clear picture of your business’s current strengths, weaknesses and opportunities • A vision for where you want your company to be in the next three to five years • An action plan to achieve your vision (who will do what and by when) Your growth plan could be anything from a rough, informal sketch to a full-blown,

What’s vital is getting the key players in your company on the same page, thinking about your future. “If you’re going to grow, you should absolutely have a plan,” says Paul Cubbon, who teaches entrepreneurship and innovation at the University of British Columbia’s Sauder School of Business.“Failing to plan is planning to fail.” Latour agrees.“The plan doesn’t have to be pages and pages long. Sometimes the simpler, the better. But if you don’t have a planned, disciplined approach to growth, you’re probably going to make more mistakes.”

Christopher Moreno is a firm believer in creating a growth plan – and following it with discipline. His event planning and production business, 365 Productions, was growing so quickly in 2011 that he and partner Ben Patience worried it was spinning out of control. “We were concerned about having too many things on the conveyor belt,” Moreno says. We said: “Eventually the conveyor belt is going to be full, and something is going to fall off the end.” The duo decided to embark on a strategic planning exercise. The process helped clarify their opportunities, risks and roles in the company. The result: a detailed fiveyear plan that included financial forecasts for three different growth scenarios. The plan helped them boost sales to an expected $3.2 million in 2012 from $1.8 million in 2010. They have even exceeded their goals, meeting their year-three targets in 18 months. And the plan has helped guide a successful international expansion into Britain and Australia. Along the way, they made sure to meet regularly with employees to see if the plan needs any tweaking and check how their plan is being implemented by measuring progress against their benchmarks. “The plan is 10 per cent of the work; the other 90 per cent is actually doing it,” Moreno says. “If you don’t get in the car and drive, the roadmap is useless.” NC

Mortgages

Watch out for those Collateral Mortgages! So what is a “collateral mortgage?” A collateral mortgage is a loan that is secured against property for an amount that is typically 100% or in excess of the value of the property rather than the amount of money actually borrowed. Typically a collateral mortgage is registered for a secured line of credit. Today many banks are offering what are thought to be regular mortgage loans when in reality they are collateral mortgages secured against the entire amount of equity in a property. A traditional mortgage lets you establish a set amount to be borrowed, the rate for the term chosen (e.g. 2.3% for 5 years) and the amortization so that the borrower will know exactly when the whole amount will be paid off and will also know what existing equity may be available in the property. If a borrower of a “traditional” mortgage wished to borrow more by using a second mortgage or registering a home equity line of credit, they could. However, a borrower of a “collateral mortgage” may not have this flexibility. This problem arises because the value of the bank’s “security” differs from that of what is actually lent. Several banks here in Canada are now going forward with this new approach. One notable culprit, TD Bank, is actually registering 125% of property value, even though that amount has not and never will be advanced to the borrower. Their objective is to have a greater chance of the client returning to the bank for more financing due to the fact that the bank would have secured their entire value of the borrower’s property. A transfer to a new bank is going to be more costly because a lawyer must always be involved. The borrower is often trapped! Another major issue that should be considered prior to stepping into a collateral mortgage involves the other debts the borrower may have. Under Canadian law a lender of a collateral mortgage may seize equity to cover other debt you have with the same lender. So, in essence, you are securing all of your loans, credit cards, lines, car loans, and overdrafts held with the lender of your collateral mortgage. Many borrowers are not even aware of what they’re getting into since bank sales representatives often conveniently fail to mention these details. When the bank sends the paper work to your lawyer you may find an unpleasant surprise and often at a time far too late to allow for arranging new financing. If you are looking to purchase a second home or an investment property, any collateral loans you have will be registered on your credit bureau. When you approach a new lender for a mortgage the lender will have to calculate you eligibility/approval based on what is registered on your property, not just the amount received from the lender. You look leveraged and now your ratios may not allow you to qualify for an approval on other purchases. If you are a real estate investor, this is suicide to you. Real estate investing is about flexibility and the last thing you want to do is limit your access to equity. TD isn’t the only bank to offer collateral mortgages. Credit unions also use them; HSBC and the Royal Bank have a “re advanceable mortgage,” which is a collateral mortgage. Scotiabank’s STEP is also a collateral mortgage. Most chartered banks will not accept “transfers” of collateral mortgages from other chartered banks so the borrower will have to pay larger fees to register a new conventional mortgage if the decision is made to move to a new lender. However, if you already have a mortgage with one of the lenders that register loans in this way, it would be wise to remove yourself as soon as possible in order to gain control over your debt! Collateral mortgages allow lenders to change the interest rate after closing. All a borrower has to do to trigger an increase in interest rate is miss a payment. Since the collateral mortgages are being registered with rates as high as prime + 10% (regardless of the rate stated on your original mortgage document), lenders will cover their potential losses by increasing the rates if they feel a potential default in the horizon. When looking for financing it is much better to have a broker working for you rather than putting your fate in the hands of a specific, branch level, bank mortgage specialist. It is the banks objective to keep you as a customer and only offer you an option from its limited selection of financing options. A mortgage broker/agent has access to several lenders that are not available at street level and can negotiate on your behalf, buy down rates, and confirm that the mortgage is best suited for you. Don’t let big banks tease you with these low rates and get caught in a trap. When something looks too good to be true it usually is.
