Seminar Description: This full-day seminar deals with income tax issues that general practitioners encounter every day. Topics will be approached as practical issues rather than the technical details. General background information will be provided to promote an understanding of each issue. Practical concerns, problems, suggestions and planning will be emphasized.

Many participants take this seminar again and again because they find the content very relevant to the client situations they deal with and because each year there is always something new.

Practitioners interested in learning ways to recognize when select income tax rules may apply in client situations and understanding the importance of identifying such areas, should consider taking the seminar titled "General Practitioners Need to Know" where various income tax subjects are covered, including some of the subjects covered in this seminar, but from a very different perspective.

General corporate and personal income tax knowledge.
Seminar Outline:
  • Issues and recent developments related to the taxation of select sources of income including active business income, small business deduction, management fees, employees vs. contractors and personal services businesses
  • Remuneration issues - including integration, salary vs. dividends, salary reasonableness, income splitting with family members, bonuses payable
  • Expenses/assets with both a personal and business element - including meals and entertainment, automobiles, taxable benefits
  • Shareholder benefits and loans issues - including debit balances
  • Timely and topical practical matters of interest to Practitioners
  • Common traps for the small business illustrated through practical, realistic examples and situations (bonus material – covered in class when time permits)
  • Newsy and notable information, ideas and resources of interest to general practitioners
Pre-requisite: General corporate and personal income tax knowledge.
Who Will Benefit: Practitioners that have general income tax knowledge and have dealt with small and medium-sized owner-managed businesses. It is not recommended that participants attend this seminar and General Practitioners Need to Know in the same year.
