If you are paying for your health care from your personal bank account and you own a business, there is a better way. You can change this out-of-your-pocket expense to a business write-off and can actually pay for your health care with before-tax dollars through your business. Whether you are a sole proprietor or an incorporated company, whether you are a company of one or one hundred, you are eligible to profit from Aquilian Benefits!

Why spend another year or even one more week paying for medical expenses out of your pocket if you can put these expenses through your business and save the taxes?
