CLEBC Update | April 2017

Upcoming Course — Welcome to the New Age: Developments in Taxation 2017

April 2017

Lawyers need to understand how the tax system functions in the contemporary world. Although tax law changes constantly, the last few years have seen a rapid increase in the pace and number of changes. Significant international and domestic changes have affected some basic assumptions of how the taxation system operates. 

This course is designed to ensure that commercial solicitors and business advisors understand how the tax system will impact the transactions and problems their clients bring to them.

CLEBC will cover:

  • new domestic and international initiatives in tax policy and administration
  • changes to the principal
    residence exemption
  • the foreign offshore buyer’s tax and the vacant homes tax 
  • changes to provincial sales tax and GST
  • updates on personal taxation, corporate taxation, and trusts and estate taxation

The course will be held on Friday, May 26, 2017, either in Vancouver or by live webinar. Commercial and tax lawyers, both litigators and solicitors, and those who advise clients about tax issues on an occasional basis, should plan to attend.
