Under both regimes, the mandatory disclosure requirements will only apply if the taxpayer has made certain arrangements with an advisor or promoter e. Under both the federal and Quebec regimes, the mandatory disclosure appears to be targeting marketed tax transactions to allow the federal and Quebec governments to identify these types of transactions quickly.
However, the Quebec proposals then go much further by introducing changes to the Quebec general anti-avoidance rule the Quebec GAAR which include a "preventive" disclosure regime for transactions that may be subject to the Quebec GAAR. Under these proposals, the reassessment period for applying the Quebec GAAR will be extended for three years if disclosure of the transaction has not been made either under the mandatory or preventive regime.
The extended reassessment period and penalty are applicable even where there is no confidentiality or conditional fee arrangement with an advisor or promoter. Therefore, any time the Quebec GAAR may apply to a transaction, Quebec taxpayers will need to consider whether disclosure of the transaction should be made. A detailed discussion of the federal and Quebec regimes follows. On May 7, , the federal government released more detailed proposals as part of its public consultation process.
The proposed federal regime requires reporting of "avoidance transactions" where certain additional conditions are met.
In particular, the government has identified three "hallmarks" of what it considers to be ATP. When an avoidance transaction involves any two of these hallmarks, reporting will be required. Avoidance Transaction For purposes of the disclosure regime, an avoidance transaction is given the same definition as applies for the general anti-avoidance rule in the Income Tax Act Canada the Federal GAAR.
Specifically, a transaction is considered to be an avoidance transaction where it results in a tax benefit and cannot reasonably be considered to have been arranged or undertaken primarily for purposes other than to obtain the tax benefit.
Although the federal government has stated that disclosure will not be considered an admission by the taxpayer that a particular transaction is an "avoidance transaction" for purposes of applying the Federal GAAR, it will be interesting to see how this applies in practice since a precondition of mandatory disclosure is the existence of such a transaction.
Hallmarks of Aggressive Tax Planning The first identified hallmark of ATP exists where a promoter or tax advisor is entitled to fees in respect of the transaction that are attributable in any measure to the amount of the tax benefit or are to any extent contingent upon obtaining the benefit, or are arrived at by reference to the number of taxpayers participating in the transaction or receiving advice as to its consequences.
The second hallmark, "confidential protection", is met where the promoter or tax advisor in respect of the transaction places any limitation on the taxpayer's ability to disclose the details or structure of the transaction.
The third hallmark, "contractual protection", exists where there is any form of insurance other than professional liability insurance , indemnity or compensation that protects against a failure to obtain the tax benefit, limits the taxpayer's cost in respect of the tax benefit, or is intended to guarantee a return of the cost of property acquired by the taxpayer in the course of the transaction. Disclosure Requirement Where an avoidance transaction meets at least two of the three hallmarks, the taxpayer is required to report prescribed information to the Canada Revenue Agency in the year the tax benefit arises.
The reporting requirement also applies to any person who has entered into such a transaction for the benefit of the taxpayer, as well as any promoter or tax advisor entitled to the types of fees described above. Where multiple parties are required to file an information return respecting the same transaction, disclosure by any one party will satisfy the obligation for all. Failure to disclose a reportable transaction as and when required will result in suspension of the tax benefit until such disclosure is made and until any penalties levied for the non-disclosure are paid.
The new regime will apply to transactions entered into after and those forming part of a series of transactions commencing before and completed after Penalties for Non-Disclosure The penalty payable by a taxpayer who has not disclosed a reportable transaction is equal to the total of all fees payable to any promoter or tax advisor entitled to fees of the type identified in the hallmark.
Any person who entered the transaction for the benefit of the taxpayer is jointly and severally liable with the taxpayer to pay the penalty, and each promoter or tax advisor is jointly and severally liable for the portion of the penalty representing their fee.
A "due diligence" defence exists where the person who failed to disclose a reportable transaction has exercised an appropriate degree of care, diligence and skill to prevent such failure.
Subject to certain exceptions noted below, the legislation is generally effective for transactions carried out by a taxpayer including a partnership after October 14, unless the transactions are part of a series of transactions that began before October 15, and that were completed before January 1, Mandatory Disclosure Mandatory disclosure obligations will apply to:.
She was not always easy-going regarding our inexperience with certain tasks--she was very open about her preference for volunteers with a larger skill set in manual labor. Occasionally, some of her comments implied a lack of patience and appreciation for our help.
However, we empathized with this, as we were aware her way of life depends on getting these tasks done and done well. Our days off were full of adventure. We took a trip to the fjords of Bella Coola, picked blueberries, rode a floatplane, and took multiple scenic hikes. We enjoyed hearing your story and wish you the best!
They were a bit out of their depth in the wilderness but they tried very hard and if they had stayed longer than 2 weeks, they would have learned a lot more. Left by Workawayer Dora for host. Everybody has their own box.
Pleasant person, tidy worker, but unable to think outside the box. As I live in a wilderness situation this is essential. Left by Workawayer Ethan for host.
Chris's place was exactaly what we were after, a real experience that I will remember for life. She feed us extremely well and we were never hungry. She was very generous and showed us an impressive climb high up with a panoramic view of awesome mountain ranges. Could not have been better! He and friend Logan Heath came already skilled at chain saw and mechanic work - they did wonders on my place and old vehicles.
I cannot thank them enough. I could not have wished for better! Marien came already skilled as a very good carpenter and did fantastic work. Both worked very hard.
I wish they could have stayed longer. She is a great source of information about wilderness. Her place is beautiful, full off great art , books and well organize.
We only spent 2 days with her and we regret that but we were house sitting for her 3 weeks and had no problems. Her dogs were great companions for us. The area around is very beautiful, forest, lakes, lots … read more of widelife.
She let us use her truck and quad - Darek loved riding it. Thank you Chris, we hope we will meet again. Tom had tons of energy and surprising carpentry skills, considering he had done very little before. He worked very well with the other volunteers and hated to be idle. He would always find something to do if I was too busy to organize him. Thenks, tom, for your great stay.
Left by Workawayer Thomas for host. The month I spent with Chris went by all too quickly. She gave me the opperunity to learn some new skills and was easy going when I made mistakes! The chilcotin itself is an amazing place too with so much to see, I wish I could have stayed longer and seen more!
Chris had some great friends as well who were all as interesting and fun to be around. Kontaktaufnahme ist nur bei Workawayern mit einem aktiven Account möglich dieser Account ist nicht aktiv. Left by Workawayer Sanjey for host. Chris was a great host. I learned a lot from my stay in the Chilcotin for sure, life here is quite different from a busy city life. The work and Chris's simple and yet tasty meals keeps one fit and healthy.
I probably experienced more new things in the one month I stayed with Chris than I would have in several months back home. Harry and Badger … read more were wonderful companions on hikes, I really miss going for walks with them in the evenings. Overall, staying with Chris gave me an opportunity to experience the Canadian bush for the first time and the settings offered a peace and quiet that let me reflect and meditate on my thoughts.
I left the Chilcotin with a new clarity and outlook on my life, all though the month passed by all too quickly the memories I made will forever remain in a cherished place in my heart. Sanjey was with me a month.
He was a very willing worker, but had a lot to learn about my remote way of life! He has a delightful personality - very pleasant to talk to about a wide range of subjects.
