Proposed tax changes

The facts

October 3, 2017

Back in July, Finance Minister Bill Morneau announced his plan for corporate tax reform, stating that the intention was to level the playing field for all Canadians by removing ‘unfair advantages’ currently offered to small businesses. This led to an outpouring of rhetoric, as expected, and there has been steady media coverage of the subject ever since. While some are praising the proposal, others are criticizing its framing of ‘loopholes’ and other language, arguing that the current setup exists with good reason. Strong opinions have formed, and there is great debate in the small business, farming and medical professional communities.

Understanding that we are all entitled to an opinion and not every investor will feel the same way, Mailey Rogers Group would like to present some key facts about taxation in Canada. We hope you will use these facts to better understand the proposal and form your own opinion on the matter.

September 14, 2017

Mailey Rogers Group is standing proud in this photo, taken in Vancouver’s Stanley Park – but unfortunately, we did not take home any shiny new trophies last week.

After a fierce battle on the baseball diamond, our West Vancouver ScotiaMcLeod ball team was bitterly defeated by the Vancouver office…brawn beat brains, but only on the field! Our team continues to dominate on the wealth management front, where we really knock it out of the park. That’s a homerun for our clients! (And enough baseball metaphors to last a lifetime, we’ll admit.)
