2016 Workshop At A Glance:

Curse of the Bermuda Triangle:   Working with Multi-Family Farms. Does anyone really understand what is going on?
History Rewritten:   Do we still get the small business deduction?
Tax Policy:   The Beginning of the End, a discussion considering tax policy changes that could affect Canadians and especially farmers.
People Die, Land Doesn’t:   Understanding unique land ownership options and tenancy arrangements.
Ag Industry Update and Legislative Changes: Ever heard of Bill C 6?
Tips and Traps:   Unique Court Cases, Technical Interpretations.
Protecting the Parents: A discussion on how to create tax effective retirement income and then securing this income stream.

 

This year, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry have decided to keep most of the focus on succession planning in a new tax environment. With recent legislative changes and potential new minefields, planning for moving the family farm down to the next generation has posed some interesting challenges. The course will discuss past planning opportunities and how these plans fit in the present tax environment, as well as visit new suggestions for managing this transition in large family farm operations. Retiring into the next generation’s company is a unique planning technique that provides creditor proofing, utilizing the capital gains deduction, a strategy to sell personal land to a company while keeping direct control and ownership. In addition, we will provide an update in the agricultural industry cycle, along with updates on impacts of how new legislation will affect your clients.
