Shareholders' Agreements: A Tax and Legal Guide, 3rd Edition

ISBN #: 9781553679998

Format: Book & DVD

The best-selling Shareholders' Agreements: a Tax and Legal Guide is a practical, easy to read reference guide to the major business, financial, and tax considerations involved when structuring shareholders' agreements. The book has been revised since the last edition to take into account changing tax legislation and updates to common legal precedents such as:

Enhanced GAAR discussion with comments on recent Superior Court of Canada decision
Changes relating to non-competition agreements
New dividend taxation rules
New issues on share purchase on death
Increased lifetime SBC capital gains deduction
Changes relating to non-resident vendors/purchasers

The above changes will impact the typical shareholders' agreement as it would relate to payment of dividends vs. retention of income at the corporate level, structuring buyouts in the most tax effective way and the role of holding companies.

Consequently, the content of the book has been updated in order to meet the needs of professionals such as lawyers, accountants, insurance agents, and financial advisors who are frequently asked to comment on these types of agreements. This is especially important since shareholders' agreements form an integral part of business succession and estate planning, which is an area of projected growth given an aging population.

Additional Content:

Shareholders' Agreements: a Tax and Legal Guide also includes boilerplate samples on the accompanying DVD. Working sample agreements and variable clauses will be included on the DVD for convenient agreement creation.
