The 39th Agriculture Update for Professionals Seminar will be taking place across Alberta between October 15 and October 24 2018.

In this years course we’ll take a close look at the multiple profit center family farm. With farm expansion we see more farms with multiple families and generations farming as one entity. We’ll address a number of operational issues, cover strategies on moving equity to the next generation but maintain control. We will work through examples involving shareholder agreements, life estates, repurchase options and strategies for utilizing intercorporate loans.

Additionally we will work through examples for the Agriculture industry with regards to passive investments including: rental issues, surface leases, seismic, etc. We will also go through implications for Tax on Split Income for the agriculture industry in both large and small companies. We will address farm purification, land swaps, and options for pipeline strategies during a farmers lifetime. Other items will include strategies for agriculture leasing and transferring a personal lease to a company.
