TORONTO, Feb. 20, 2018 /CNW/ - In advance of Canada's upcoming federal budget, experts from Grant Thornton LLP, Canada, are available to provide insight on the possible impact on Canadian businesses and the economy.
These tax advisors bring a depth of knowledge and can speak to highlights of the federal budget, including key questions and topics that are top of mind for Canadians, such as:
Impact of Proposed Passive Income Changes
- How the changes limit business owners ability to expand and innovate, and which could hurt the Canadian economy.
Income Splitting and the Future of Family Business
- How changes are affecting small-and-medium sized business owners who rely on income splitting to invest more into expansion and innovation.
The Need for Increased Scientific Research Funding
