Business at Breakfast - Major Income Tax Changes

Business @ Breakfast - *Update* MAJOR INCOME TAX CHANGES

Corinne A. Wilkes Professional Corporation who specializes in taxation will break down and explain the effects these changes will have on your business, and what amendments Mr. Morneau has made since the announcement in July.

The federal government’s tax proposals could dramatically change the way incorporated small businesses are taxed in Canada. These proposals, while intended to target the wealthy, may severely jeopardize middle-class business owners from every sector of the economy.

“Nobody supports tax evasion or loopholes. But these changes will punish legitimate businesses big and small and personal corporations,” said Cranbrook Chamber executive director David D. Hull “These changes come on the heels of the government cancelling reductions in the small business tax rate, tightened rules on partnerships and started taxing work in progress. That’s on top of new carbon taxes, raised CPP premiums and an increase in the EI rate. Our members are asking why this government keeps raising taxes on business. Their focus should be on generating wealth, rather than taxing it.”

"This would be a huge detriment to the Canadian economy as small businesses drive more than 90% of the economy", Hull said.
