The Intersection of Taxation and Insolvency 

3 mars 2020
Toronto ON

OBA Taxation Law and Insolvency Law PROGRAM | 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM

The intersection of bankruptcy and taxation is a complicated area of the law. While there are a limited number of provisions in Canada's federal taxation statutes that specifically address situations where a taxpayer has become insolvent, there are a variety of other provisions that can apply to insolvency situations that lawyers must be aware of in order to best serve their clients.  Our expert panel, made up of both tax and insolvency practitioners, will guide you through common issues and provide a practical perspective of the implications and cost-benefit of actions to be taken where a taxpayer is, or may, become insolvent.

The discussion will focus on:

  • Limitations on the distribution of proceeds of sale by court officers in light of clearance certificate requirements
  • The impact of HST considerations for creditors of a possibly insolvent borrower
  • Debt restructuring options and considerations
  • Director and third-party liability

Whether you practice in the tax or insolvency area (or both), join your colleagues in both bars for an insightful dinner program to gain a practical perspective and the necessary tools to spot and deal with common taxation challenges faced in the insolvency context.
