Online On-Demand Event

We have seen a number of Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) challenges as to whether the disposal of a capital property is a principal residence or not. It now appears CRA has expanded their project in this area. Based on the flipped classroom model, this webinar will help you in determining if a property is a principal residence, as well as determining whether a transaction is on capital or income account.

Additional options and pricing may be available. See pricing and registration for more details.
