Canadian corporations that receive dividends from other Canadian corporations may be adversely affected by a recently expanded anti-avoidance rule in subsection 55(2) of the Income Tax Act, which re-characterizes certain tax-free intercorporate dividends as taxable capital gains.

Now the rule can apply in a lot more circumstances, and many standard corporate transactions that create dividends can be caught. From creditor proofing to purification, these complex changes affect popular strategies and create new compliance burdens for practitioners and businesses across Canada.

Our free webinar explains the changes, illuminates the risks and examines the components that comprise safe income on hand. You’ll find out the obligations affecting your practice and how you can help protect your clients from unexpected taxes through practical advice and recommended resources.

Join experts Jay Goodis (Tax Templates Inc.), Manu Kakkar (Manu Kakkar CPA Inc.) and Kim Moody (Moody Gartner Tax Law) for this informative, two-part webinar on January 24 and January 26, 2017, at 12:30 ET.
