BC Estate Planning & Wealth Preservation

DescriptionMore Detail

This book is essential for: 
top level estate planners in British Columbia.

You asked us for a comprehensive guide to help you provide effective estate planning strategies and tools for your clients and their complex portfolios. Leading estate and tax practitioners have responded—developing a made-in-BC resource for this expanding practice area. Take advantage of their collective wisdom in CLEBC’s British Columbia Estate Planning and Wealth Preservation. This accessible, multidisciplinary work will help you to determine a sensible approach for each client's needs, and to create trusts and other tools to minimize taxes and preserve wealth. You will be better able to handle a diverse range of client needs and situations, recognize possible pitfalls and problems, and determine when more specialized advice needs to be obtained. All the key knowledge is here, from valuable overview commentary to details of tax planning techniques and drafting considerations.
Subscriptions include
online access with search capability and links to the full text of case law and legislation, forms and precedents on CD-ROM, and annual updates.

The new commentary is extensive this year—here are some highlights of the 2010 update:

  • new chapter 13A (Trusts for Persons with Disabilities)
  • expansion of chapter 4A (now entitled Other Registered Investment Accounts: The RESP and the TFSA) to include coverage of tax-free savings accounts
  • revised commentary and several new forms and precedents for chapter 13 (Planning for Incapacity) to reflect the new Supreme Court Civil Rules
  • many important legislative developments, including the HST (effective July 1, 2010), the Insurance Amendment Act, 2009, and the precarious repeal of the estate and generation-skipping taxes in the US
