The Income Tax Act offers businesses and their owners a number of opportunities to reduce and defer tax on the transfer or combination of a business. However, for the unprepared business owner or tax practitioner, the Act is also fraught with landmines that can lessen or negate the tax effective intent of these transactions. To further complicate matters, the rules guiding both compliance and avoidance are being continuously revised and their interpretations expanded.

At this conference, our expert faculty will introduce you to some of the most common transactions involved in corporate reorganizations, and highlight those provisions in the Act where taxpayers often find themselves getting caught. You will learn how to effectively navigate these situations and avoid unintended tax consequences, and will leave knowing what you need to do to get it right, and how you can best avoid getting it wrong.
