Snapshot of Course 1: Your Tax Filing Rights and Obligations
As a Canadian taxpayer, the burden of proof is on you during a tax audit. Whether you file as an individual, corporation or trust, you should understand your taxpayer rights and obligations in order to stay on the right side of tax legislation, avoid difficult interactions with Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and reduce or avoid interest and penalties. This course provides an overview of what is required of you, and what to do when you don’t agree with CRA.
Course 2: Understanding Business Structures
In this module you will learn the differences between the various structures for small businesses. You will learn the difference between registering a business name and creating a corporation. You will also understand the benefits and disadvantages when establishing a sole proprietorship, partnership and corporation. Finally, you will learn about the different roles within the corporation. We will examine the role of shareowner, director, and officer as well as the obligations imposed, and benefits enjoyed by each one.
It is estimated that there are close to three million small businesses in Canada. Small business owners operate enterprises of every type: professionals, commission salespersons, farmers, fishermen, and revenue property owners. They are people who invest their time and money both to earn a profit and to build equity in their enterprises. This module explores how small business owners can benefit from tax advantages available to them and have the potential to increase substantially the results of their personal time and efforts over the long term.
In this course you will learn the difference between the retained earnings of a company and the share capital for accounting purposes, versus for corporate income tax reporting. You will also learn how to identify and explain how different forms of corporate distributions received and paid by a company are subject to tax. You will also explore key issues which might affect the preparation and filing of the corporate T2 Return.
Course 5: Minimizing Taxes on the Death of a Taxpayer
There’s nothing more certain than death and taxes….and the two actually go hand and hand. Unless you plan properly for the transfer of your wealth before and on death, the taxman will be getting a big slice of your estate. This module reviews why you should be discussing estate planning with your financial advisors and considerations such as taxation, deemed disposition of your assets when you die, and how to preserve your wealth when you have registered plans.
