Event overview

Reserve your spot today for our first webcast on M&A trends and expectations for 2023.

Economic headwinds and evolving tax legislation are combining to challenge businesses in 2023. A comprehensive strategy includes an understanding of how your tax function can help you tackle costs and realize value in this environment. Our webcast series is designed to foster that understanding with four sessions that translate pressing topics into actionable insights for you and your Canadian business.

The first session will focus on current mergers and acquisitions trends and noteworthy technical news from a tax perspective. Topics discussed will include:

  • How the current economic environment is affecting deal structures and the associated tax consequences
  • Legislative changes affecting asset step-up planning for buyers and corporate deferral planning for sellers
  • Widening of permitted related-party business combinations/split-ups
  • Upcoming changes to disclosure rules affecting transactions
  • Legislative changes affecting acquisition financing and interest deductibility

International tax developments

The second session in our Canada webcast series will cover:

  • Outbound updates affecting middle market businesses

Recent changes and proposed legislation in Canada may affect Canadian taxpayers with foreign affiliates. These changes range from an increased tax compliance burden to proposed changes in Budget 2022. Austen Ramsay, RSM partner in international tax, will detail these updates and how they may affect your business.

  • Excessive interest and financing expenses limitation

The proposed excessive interest and financing expense (EIFEL) legislation could have a significant effect on middle market businesses. These complex rules will affect the amount of interest that is deductible for Canadian tax purposes. Stan Zinman, RSM Canada partner in international tax, will sort through the complexity and clarify how the legislation would affect your business, including exceptions and elections that may be applicable.

March 8

Indirect tax hot topics and recent updates

In this session, Rob Dew, RSM Canada partner in indirect tax, and Gautam Rishi, RSM Canada senior director in indirect tax, will examine trending tax issues, as well as how businesses might turn to their tax function to find relief in this challenging economy. We will discuss how indirect tax recovery efforts can benefit cash flow. We will also explain how you can prepare for government audits as they become more prevalent, and we will break down recent legislation that affects digital platform operators.

March 29

Scientific research and experimental development and International Trade Commission developments: Trends and observations

In this last session in the series, we will take a deep dive into film, television and production credits as well as digital media and gaming. A variety of credits, incentives and grants can ease the tax burden of eligible businesses, but taking advantage of them requires staying updated on fast-paced changes to the landscape. In this session, Danny Ladouceur, RSM Canada partner and national credits and incentives leader, will explain the newly revised eligibility criteria for scientific research and experimental development (SR&ED) credits; government grant opportunities and the profile of eligible businesses; and the available film, TV and production tax credits that support the growing film and TV production industry in Canada.
