CPA Canada hosts briefing on donation arrangements

Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) discussed gifting tax shelter schemes at an expert panel, discussing current court cases, CRA’s concerns about these schemes and where the line is in donation planning.

On March 7, 2013, CRA officials joined a panel of experts for a discussion about donation arrangements and CRA’s crackdown on gifting tax shelter schemes.

Attended by over 90 tax professionals, the briefing featured a critical analysis of current court cases and their implications for future donation planning. Attendees also heard directly from CRA about their concerns on these schemes, where the line is in donation planning and what type of tax planning is acceptable.
