Your Investments May Have Hidden Tax Savings

Many corporate mergers between Canadian companies require shareholders to file a special tax election, through the Canada Revenue Agency (the CRA), in order to receive a tax deferred rollover. Similarly, when foreign publicly traded corporations choose to spin-off a portion of their organization, these transactions are often also granted a tax election opportunity by the CRA which allows taxpayers to avoid the T5 foreign dividend consequences of the foreign spin-off transaction.

At PAISLEY PIKE we can help you and your Investment Professional avoid immediate taxation of these specialized corporate transactions by preparing either the Section 85 or Section 86.1 documentation necessary to apply for the available tax savings opportunity.

Your engagement with PAISLEY PIKE includes a commitment to providing reliable and timely services, as well as continued support related to the work delivered under your specific engagement.
