The course offers practitioners, business owners and other tax professionals relevant technical and practical knowledge of important income tax considerations for when it is time to buy, sell, or undertake an intergenerational transfer of a private Canadian business.
The focus of this course will be on transactions between Canadian private business owners and/or their privately-held corporations as well as issues arising from their dealing with family members, public corporations, and non-residents. Following introductory comments on commercial and tax due diligence issues, a discussion of technical and practical content on relevant rules, anti-avoidance measures, planning opportunities, and updates from government and the courts will be offered in the context of commonly-used transaction structures and business vehicles. In particular, the session will explore separate and comparative material on “share deals” vs. “asset deals,” along with a presentation of issues common to both kinds of deals including high-level introductions to partnerships and unit trusts as alternative vehicles. Several hypothetical case studies will be reviewed to illustrate major concepts.
