The Essential Canadian Guide to Estate Planning will help younger and older generations alike get their estate plans in order. Readers will learn about planning for retirement; wills, trusts and powers of attorney; probate planning; charitable gifting; family law; special needs dependents; the role of life insurance; and business transition strategies.
Recent changes to the tax rules governing life insurance transfers have made these rules increasingly complex. This Guide provides advisors and their clients with an in-depth discussion of the life insurance policy transfer rules as they apply to shareholders and corporations as well as a variety of other planning situations.
This Guide provides financial and tax advisors with a detailed overview of the income attribution rules relating to property income and the tax on split income (TOSI) rules applicable to business income, and discusses the opportunities that should continue to be available for income splitting between family members.
