Welch LLP & Ottawa Chamber of Commerce Present: Proposed Tax Changes and the Effect on Small to Mid-sized Businesses

August 11, 2017

Welch LLP & Ottawa Chamber of Commerce Present: Proposed Tax Changes and the Effect on Small to Mid-sized BusinessesOn July 18th, 2017 the federal government released draft legislation which would have a material impact on tax planning for business owners. We are of the view that the policy changes are unwarranted and would be very harmful to the business community. The government has requested commentary from all stakeholders, but the consultation period is short – comments must be received by October 2nd, 2017.

Join Welch LLP + Ottawa Chamber of Commerce on September 7th at the Innovation Centre for a presentation on the contemplated tax policy changes and related implications. This is an opportunity to learn about the changes and to ensure that you can have input on the proposals before they become law. Our tax experts will address the contemplated changes in the following areas:

  • Income splitting
  • Capital gains exemption
  • Dividends vs. Capital Gains
  • Investment of retained earnings
