Below you will find all relevant media coverage, blogs, podcasts, and presentations about the new Canadian private corporation tax proposals.

On July 18, 2017, the Government of Canada released tax proposals that will have a dramatic effect on the taxation of private corporations and their shareholders. These untoward proposals represent some of the most punishing tax changes for entrepreneurs in the last 50 years. The consultation period for these proposals was very short, and ended on October 2, 2017. 

Moodys Gartner Tax Law has been working hard to ensure that private corporations, their shareholders, and any of their advisors are aware of these proposals and what they might mean. It is important that individuals potentially affected by these proposals become aware of the possible consequences and learn what their next steps should be.
