Our firm’s correspondence to the Minister of Finance: Round 2

Ever since the release of the July 18, 2017 private corporation tax proposals by the Canadian government, our firm has been very active in studying the proposals and informing the public of the consequences to the extent that they become implemented into law. In Advance of September 5-7, 2017 Kelowna, BC Caucus Meetings, our firm sent an email correspondence to the Liberal MPs.

The Liberals want to wipe out the family farm!?

I don’t write as many blogs as other members of my firm, however, today my concern rose enough to put fingers to keyboard.

The demonization of small business and their advisors

On July 18, 2017, the Department of Finance released its private corporation tax “consultation” proposals with comments due no later than October 2, 2017; a mere 75 days later.
