December 13, 2017: the headline on the Department of Finance’s website reads: “Government Simplifies Measures to Restrict Income Sprinkling”. Well this is welcome news! And just in time for Christmas! Oh… wait a minute, the release includes 24-pages of explanatory notes, 20 ‘real-life’ examples, 14 FAQs, 11-pages of technical amendments, 7-pages of background (and here), 2-weeks for Canadians to prepare, a nation of outraged entrepreneurial families and tax advisers… and a partridge in a pear-tree.
It has been just over three months since the Federal Government introduced its highly controversial plan to overhaul Canada’s small business tax regime. Many of my clients are asking me ‘where do we stand? what is the plan?’ I regret to inform you that there is still significant uncertainty surrounding these proposals and, as of the date of writing this, we still have no updated legislation to reflect on.
For your review and consideration:
I’ve attached (and linked below) our Firm’s submission to all Liberal MPs, and to the online consultation process for small business tax reform. We are writing to you, Canada’s Senators, because our firm does not believe that the Liberal government is giving adequate concern or analysis to the submissions which have been made by countless Canadians to date. This view is based on the Finance Minister’s defensive language and refusal to acknowledge any issues with the plan. In short, we do not believe the government is listening to Canadians on this topic. An adequate analysis of such wide-sweeping tax reform simply cannot be achieved in 75-days as new ‘collateral damage’ to the legislation seems to be uncovered by tax professionals with every-day that passes. We, very respectfully, request that Canada’s Senators, through whatever means available to them, initiate a proper consultation and analysis on these wide-sweeping tax reforms before they are passed into law.
