Seminar Description: Formerly Known As: Taxation of Employee Benefits

Attracting and retaining skilled employees is a critical success factor for most businesses, and most employers provide formal and informal benefits as part of their compensation plans. The morale boost of employee benefits can quickly become a morale bust when employees receive an unexpected tax bill when the Canada Revenue Agency takes an interest.
This half-day seminar provides a review of the income tax implications of benefits conferred on employees by their employers, including both owner-managers and arm’s length employees.
Participants will enhance their understanding of the income tax issues which arise from various types of benefits, assisting them in assessing the tax-effectiveness of various benefit plans and choices of employment benefits, and ensuring compliance with the tax rules. Participants will also enhance their ability to advise on tax-effective employee remuneration strategies using benefit plans.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
• Apply their tax knowledge to assess the implication of various employee benefits.
• Advise employers on the income tax issues which must be considered in selecting and delivering employee benefits.
• Incorporate the tax implications into their evaluation of employment benefit alternatives.
• Evaluate the income tax implications of existing and proposed employment benefits.
Seminar Outline:
  • Income tax treatment of benefits
  • Employee allowances and automobile benefits
  • Goods and services tax
  • Loans
  • Planning opportunities for key employees
  • Other employee benefits
Pre-requisite: Participants should have a basic understanding of personal and corporate taxation.
Who Will Benefit: The seminar is aimed at providing employers, and their advisors, with an understanding of the taxation of employee benefits in general, as well as addressing specific benefits which are either common in practice, or have unusual income tax complexities.
