Mastering Tax Reorganizations: Insights from Shajani CPA’s 40 Years of Expertise

Our deep understanding of the Canadian tax landscape, combined with our legal expertise, positions us uniquely to offer comprehensive solutions tailored to your business needs.

The Three Pillars of Tax Reorganization in Canada:

Estate Freezes: A staple in succession planning, an estate freeze is pivotal for family-owned businesses looking to transition their growth value to the next generation while locking in the current owner’s tax liability. It involves restructuring the share ownership to freeze the value of the current owner’s interest, allowing future business growth to accrue to the successors. This strategy can significantly reduce tax burdens upon the owner’s death and facilitate smoother business transitions.

Butterfly Reorganizations: Ideal for separating distinct business lines or resolving shareholder disputes, the butterfly reorganization is a strategic tool for redistributing assets and liabilities. This intricate process involves splitting a corporation into new entities, each taking a portion of the business. When executed with precision, this reorganization can offer tax-deferred separation of corporate assets in line with specific business goals.

Amalgamations: Whether vertical or horizontal, amalgamations are a powerful tool for consolidating business entities. They simplify corporate structures, enhance operational efficiency, and streamline management processes. An amalgamation must be meticulously planned to ensure compliance with tax regulations and to achieve optimal tax deferral benefits.
