Course Description

There will be two topics covered during this event:

1. Grey Rhinos - March 2019 Investment Outlook

Review of the current economic and investment climate. The presentation will cover the current global economic and political environment, current investment themes and investment implications.

     Speaker: Anish Chopra, FCPA, FCA, CFA, FCBV (Gold Medallist), Managing Director at Portfolio Management Corporation

2. Become the CRA Expert in Your Company

Dealing with the Canada Revenue Agency collections department can be a daunting task.  This is because they don’t operate by the same rules as private sector collectors, which leaves taxpayers and their representatives in the dark.

 We will discuss the unique nature of the CRA collector, the awesome and broad powers that are available to the collectors, and techniques which can be used to hold off collections and to negotiate a payment arrangement.

Judicial review of the decisions of collectors will also be touched upon.

    Speaker: Dale Barrett, B.C.L., LL.B. of Barrett Tax Law
