Wasseem Dirani is the Founder and President of Taxes to Save in Hamilton, Ontario where he serves as a financial and tax consultant for individuals starting their own businesses.
Wasseem Dirani was born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. After graduating from Westmount Secondary High School, he went on to Western University in London, Ontario, completing two years of study before being offered a job at Prudential Securities. He earned his insurance and securities license and performed ably for a few years before being given the opportunity to own his own business in the video rental and sales industry.
Despite not knowing anything about the business, he was a fast learner and was able to open four more video stores within a couple years and franchise two more afterwards. Dirani stayed in the business for six years until the opportunity to work in the securities and financial industry returned and he worked for a large financial company before going out on his own. He opened his own business, Taxes to Save, to serve as a financial and tax consultant for individuals starting their own businesses and has been successfully doing that ever since.
Tax time is upon us, but this year, filing one’s taxes is going to look a little different in Canada. Due to the different subsidies, tax credits, and benefits programs the federal governments introduced in 2020, people may be confused as to how to file their taxes this year.
Achieving a comfortable retirement is a goal that most of us have. However, what few people realize is that retirement planning isn’t just about saving. Rather, we must think about how to turn our savings into as much retirement income as possible and a lot of that comes down to taxes as you are still required to pay them in your golden years.
“I had the flexibility to do what I wanted while employed under larger firms, but the industry itself was changing a lot and I wanted to be able to move in my own direction. I was able to sell my book of business and shift towards the area of business I am in now, tax and finance consulting. “
