Taxation - Registered Charities and NFPO's (OC)
A detailed technical review of the numerous income tax issues faced by registered charities and NFPOs, including real-world examples and case studies to provide participants with practical and useful takeaways. This live virtual session will be delivered as a two-segment session (Jan. 17 & 18, 8:30 am - 12:00 pm each day).
The full-day seminar (delivered in two segments) provides a detailed technical review of the numerous income tax issues faced by registered charities and NFPOs, including real-world examples and case studies to provide participants with practical and useful takeaways.
Although registered charities and not-for-profit organizations (NFPOs) usually escape the full wrath of the dreaded taxman, they are still faced with strict tax rules that, if not followed, can lead to loss of tax status, financial penalties, and bad press. Registered charity and NFPO tax rules differ substantially from those that apply to private sector companies. Without a solid understanding of these rules, organizations may encounter difficulties in meeting their tax filing requirements and in complying with the numerous rules established in the Income Tax Act along with the related jurisprudence and guidance.
