Corporate Tax-Small Business Deduction &Private Corp. Groups

Unique taxation issues apply to groups of privately held companies and their access to the small business deduction.  The seminar will outline the significant changes made in the past few years, including a detailed review of the association rules, reductions of the small business deduction limit, specified partnership income, specified corporate income rules for income streams, basic considerations for intercorporate dividends, and the impact of trusts in the corporate group. This live virtual session will be delivered as a two-segment session. (Nov 15 & 16, 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm each day).

OBJECTIVE:
While the small business deduction reduces the amount of income tax for many corporations, the myriad of rules and regulations and recent changes has significantly expanded the complexity. These changes have substantially increased challenges for accessing the small business deduction, rendering it one of the most complex provisions in the Income Tax Act (ITA) that is commonly used by most practitioners.

The seminar covers the unique taxation issues that apply to groups of privately held companies and their access to the small business deduction.  It will outline the significant changes made in the past few years, including a detailed review of the association rules, reductions of the small business deduction limit, specified partnership income, specified corporate income rules for income streams, basic considerations for intercorporate dividends, and the impact of trusts in the corporate group. Mini cases and review questions will be used to highlight these concepts. 

The seminar does not include a review of Section 55, Safe Income or GST/HST as additional courses on these topics are available.
