Section 51 of the Income Tax Act allows a shareholder's "capital property" shares to be exchanged for other shares of that corporation without immediate tax consequences. With all of the steps involved in a s. 51 reorganization, it is easy to become disoriented. In this specialized lunchtime course, experienced faculty will guide you through the preparation and filing of s. 51 reorganization documents. You will receive checklists, tips, prescribed forms, and precedents for working on these transactions.

After attending this course, you will be able to:

  • plan out a s. 51 reorganization, including the steps needed, time considerations, and what to look for in the accountant's instructions
  • determine whether a company's structure is appropriate for a s. 51 reorganization, and if not, what alterations need to be made before proceeding
  • draft the necessary documents, implement the transaction, and understand how the reorganization changes corporate record keeping moving forward
  • report back to the client and the accountant
