Press Release

Tax advisors from Grant Thornton available for Federal Budget Day commentary

A network of tax advisors from Grant Thornton LLP are available from coast-to-coast to provide insight on the federal budget’s impact on Canadian businesses and the economy.

Toronto, ON - March 22, 2017

These tax advisors bring a depth of knowledge and can speak to highlights of the federal budget, including key questions and topics that are top of mind for Canadians, such as:

  • Impact of new U.S. tax policies on Canada
  • The impact of the proposed U.S. tax plan on Canadians and Canadian businesses.
  • How executives across the country can plan to address the changes.
  • Finding the right balance in marijuana taxes

With the impending federal legalization of marijuana, the government must walk a fine line between generating revenue through taxation and developing a regulated pricing model that will act as a barrier to shadow market activity.

Possibility of Capital Gains reduction

Why the federal government should maintain or lower the capital gains inclusion rate of 50% to lead to higher levels of entrepreneurship, economic growth, and job creation.

Fostering Innovation

How the federal government can drive the commercialization of R&D and new technology as well as rejuvenate the manufacturing sector to foster a more innovative environment, increase investment and create jobs through various tax incentives.

Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS)

Canada’s response to the global movement towards tightening corporate international taxation.
