Get a strong working knowledge of section 85 and the technical, legal and tax implications it has for corporations.
Section 85 of the Income Tax Act permits tax-free transfer of property to a corporation, as long as specific rules are followed.
This online course provides you with working knowledge of tax issues and solutions from both the technical and conceptual perspectives of Section 85 rollovers, with an emphasis on the common tax situations and circumstances facing Canadian small business corporations and resident individuals.
The course is based on the Income Tax Act as it currently stands. Any relevant proposals and pending legislation have been incorporated into these materials as if they had been passed into law. Should any of that pending legislation not be implemented there would be no material effect on the course.
