As the year draws to a close, tax planning becomes a topic of interest for many. Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton therefore organized a series of breakfast conferences for its clients, prospects and business contacts on “Optimizing your year-end tax and personal planning”.

Our clients were offered a variety of dates and locations for their convenience: La Prairie, Montréal, Saint-Hyacinthe and Gatineau.

During these conferences (with one in English), eight of our experts took turns presenting their recommendations for measures to take before December 31, 2016: Édith Pion (Partner, Brossard), Philippe Asselin (Partner, Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu), Stéphane Lauzon (Partner, Montréal), Pascal Leclerc (Partner, Saint-Hyacinthe and Montréal), Bruno Charron (Partner, Gatineau), Benoit Turcotte (Partner, Montréal), Frédérik Kyriazis (Senior Manager, Ottawa) and Pierre-Yves Lemieux (Senior Consultant, Gatineau).

Topics addressed included tax reduction planning techniques, shareholder agreements, estate planning and capital losses.

This year, with Donald Trump’s election as the new President of the United States, a new topic was added on the tax rules applying to property owned in the U.S.

Make a note on your calendar to join our experts again next year at this time for new tax planning conferences.
