Clients often engage professional accountants to assist with transactions designed to accomplish objectives such as creditor proofing, estate planning, and corporate restructuring. These transactions require that practitioners possess comprehensive knowledge of Section 85 in the Income Tax Act in order to meet the client’s objectives in a tax-efficient manner. Section 85 interacts with several related and anti-avoidance provisions that professionals should understand in relation to these engagements.
Each module contains specific examples and cases designed to help participants review relevant tax theory and focus on major tax planning issues, including filing requirements and ensuring the transaction is not caught by key anti-avoidance provisions.
