Canada’s Changing Capital Gains Tax Landscape

Canada’s Changing Capital Gains Tax Landscape

Understanding the Proposed Changes:

The proposed increase in the inclusion rate of capital gains, could lead to higher tax obligations for both individuals and corporations when realizing capital gains. Currently, 50% of capital gains are subject to tax, but if this rate is raised, it could significantly impact the financial outcomes of entrepreneurs and investors.

We recently hosted a live webinar on the topic which you can watch on YouTube.

Key Take-Aways:

  1. The proposal is part of the government’s efforts to address wealth inequality.
  2. The current capital gains inclusion rate is 50%.
  3. The potential changes could involve increasing this rate to 2/3 or 66.67%.
  4. This is not the first time the capital gains inclusion rate has changed, or even increased, since its introduction.
  5. Everyone’s individual situation is of the utmost importance when considering these changes.

Strategies for Entrepreneurs and Investors:

Given the potential changes in capital gains tax, it’s crucial for entrepreneurs and investors to evaluate their strategy. Here are some proactive steps to consider:

  1. Tax Planning: Engage with tax professionals to explore your strategies for structuring investments.
  2. Investing Decisions: Ensure you are reviewing your full picture plan with your trusted tax and investment advisors.

Testimonial from Rob Waterman - President at Waterman Sales Ltd.

We have been in Business since 1992 and had an accountant who was a family friend. When he retired, we needed to find a new accountant. Jacob at Hendry Warren was recommended to us through our Lawyer. We met with him and were impressed immediately; over the years we have gotten to know more of the staff and are equally impressed. They have done our company taxes, company valuations, share purchases, tax planning, covid relief, personal taxes, etc. All of which have gone very smoothly. Hendry Warren is aware of new legislation and has helped us grow as a company.
