Éric Dufour, the Regional Vice-President and National Leader, Business Transfers, at Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, participated in an in-depth interview on Radio-Canada on business transfer issues. As numerous entrepreneurs are retiring, they need information and help to carry out efficient and structured business transfers. A well-planned strategic transfer process should be established to ensure the longevity of wealth-creating businesses.

Éric comments on this major issue affecting entrepreneurs. Listen to the radio interview (in French) (October 23, 2016) on Désautels le dimanche or read the online article (in French) on this topic.

The firm maintains its claims

Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton considers that federal and Quebec governments should adopt further measures for ensuring successful business transfers in Quebec and Canada. The tax policies relating to business transfers should be harmonized among the governments and tax fairness should apply to all businesses from all industries.

Read the firm’s reaction again concerning the tabling of the 2016 federal and Quebec budgets, as well as the letter sent to the Prime Minister of Canada, the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, in July 2016, about tax equity on intergenerational business transfers.
