Further Re-Examination of Tax Proposals 
 October 25, 2017

"As a follow-up to our article last week regarding the changes the government is currently making to their original tax proposals presented on July 18, 2017, a further announcement was made on October 19th with respect to the issue of converting income (salary or dividends) to capital gains which are taxed at a lower rate. This concept is commonly referred to as “surplus stripping”.

How's their form?  

The CCA and SAIT have a longstanding relationship and are always excited to see how they can work together! President, Fabio Filice and Director of Business Development, Terrence Patrick enjoyed their tour of the Career Exploration Centre and construction labs around the SAIT campus!
