    Changes to Business Tax Laws - Update Oct. 18, 2017

    "When commenting on this specific announcement, the Globe and Mail stated on October 17th that, “it may be a political winner, particularly compared to what the government first rolled out, but it’s an ironic end for a tax reform that was supposed to be about reducing incentives to incorporate. The government is basically trying to plug leaks in the small business dike with one hand while shaving down the height of the embankment with the other”.
