MEDIA ADVISORY/INTERVIEW OPPORTUNITY - Competitiveness, passive income and personal measures: BDO Canada’s 2018 federal budget perspective

Toronto, ON, Feb. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With the upcoming federal budget set to be tabled by Canada’s Finance Minister on February 27, tax experts at BDO Canada are available to provide compelling insight on the implications of the federal budget on Canadian small businesses, corporations, consumers and the economy at-large.


Topic-specific and local experts are on hand to provide strategic analysis on some of the economic uncertainty caused by increased political tension, and how that may affect new domestic taxation measures in Canada.




BDO tax experts from across the country are available before, on and after Budget Day for commentary. Areas of expertise for commentary include:


  • Competitiveness: measures to keep a competitive business climate in Canada – whether through tax changes or investments in innovation – given the uncertainty around ongoing NAFTA negotiations and the implementation of recent U.S. tax reform
  • Passive income rules: continued updates building on the private corporation changes released in Fall 2017
  • Personal measures: impact of pay-equity legislation and eliminating tax credits on individuals and households


BDO Canada will be hosting a post-budget webinar at 11:30 ET on March 1 to summarize budget analysis. To register for the webinar sign up here:
