The Passive Income "Unreform" - Recent Developments - Recorded Webinar

In stock

The earning of passive income had always received somewhat special tax treatment and been the subject of some very specific tax rules.  More recently, the 2018 federal budget introduced new changes that have yet another impact on the way passive income is taxed and influences other areas of taxation. It is vital for service providers to stay abreast of these differences and changes when advising their clients.

Join Manu Kakkar of Kakkar CPA Professional Corporation for a practical overview of the tax considerations and treatment of passive income. The presentation will also include several real-world examples and case studies which are drawn from the presenter’s everyday experiences.  In this context, planning alternatives, and common “tips” and “traps” will be discussed.

More specifically, topics covered will include:

  • Introduction of a New Passive Income Limitation
  • Policy Concerns
  • Various Numerical Example
