Course description

While partnerships are not subject to tax, there are tax implications associated with partnerships and their partners. With amendments to the income tax act we have seen the elimination of tax deferrals that were common with partnerships; and with the introduction of the specified partnership income rules the ability to access multiple small business deductions has been reduced. Even with these changes, partnership continue to be an attractive vehicle for carrying on business.

This course will review the types of partnerships, computation of the adjusted cost base, at-risk amounts, as well as, a run down of how to complete a partnership return and the reporting of partnership income by the partners. We will also discuss considerations for when drafting up partnership agreements.

More specifically, topics covered will include:

  • What is a Partnership
  • Types of Partnerships
  • Residency of a Partnership
  • Partnership Agreements

  • Tax filing requirements
  • Common and not so common reporting issues
