Conference Overview

Recent developments in corporate taxation have had a significant impact on current taxation and tax planning as the new FAPI rules come into force, changes to partnerships and joint venture taxation are implemented and judicial rulings affect Tower financing structures.  In addition, the conversion to IFRS and ongoing volatility in the markets both have tax implications that must be identified and managed. With the 2012 Federal Budget just around the corner, further corporate tax changes are likely to occur.

At times like this, the need for senior level, up-to-date tax information is critical. Tax agencies are becomingly increasingly aggressive as they demand access to working papers and greater disclosure of sensitive tax planning strategies.  Anti-avoidance rules and increased challenges to tax strategies are tools being directed by tax agencies at corporate tax departments with greater frequency. 

This event has been specifically designed to target the hottest and most complex tax issues affecting Canadian and U.S. business executives, their professional advisors and tax agencies.  This concise, focused two-day conference will bring you up-to-date and provide useful, practical knowledge for day-to-day operations and compliance.
