Course Description

The Canadian Income Tax Act levies income tax on the worldwide income of resident Canadians. Multinational business structures are efficient, from both an operational and financial standpoint, and are often necessary in order to transact with certain entities located outside Canada. However, the practical difficulties associated with monitoring international investment and business activities cause headaches for Revenue Canada. To help combat this issue, the Income Tax Act requires Canadian taxpayers to report income that stems from, foreign affiliates.
