In an article in the newspaper Finance et Investissement addressing the tax risks of foreign diversification, Tax Partner Renée Gladu explains that it is possible to recover withholding taxes on investment income earned in the United States, for example. The withholding tax is 30% in principle, but under the Canada-United States Income Tax Convention, this rate is reduced to 15% for dividends.

“The tax withheld can be deducted from taxes paid in Canada.” Ms. Gladu indicates that this credit very often will be claimed on the investor’s federal income tax return. “For example, if a taxpayer earns between $43,953 and $87,902 at a federal marginal tax rate of 18.4%, he will therefore use his entire 15% federal credit,” Ms. Gladu points out.

Acquiring a business is a demanding process that requires efficient planning. Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton has become a leader in facilitating transfers and thus providing buyers with sound support. In some cases, business transfer transactions must materialize quickly, but planning nonetheless remains important.

Partner Éric Dufour, National Business Transfer Leader at Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, collaborated on a Les Affaires article relating the story of a young entrepreneur. In this article, the expert mentions the relevance of “creating a bank of consulting hours for young buyers, as is done in Europe. An entrepreneur who wants to prepare his or her succession plan can receive a grant from Emploi-Québec. But nothing exists for individuals who would like to analyze an acquisition. ”

“It is important to be able to equip young entrepreneurs adequately in the business transfer process. “In a context where business creation is more popular among young entrepreneurs than the option of buying an existing business, every means must be sought to ensure the sustainability of our local businesses,” Éric Dufour believes.
