Commercial Law Series: Tax Avoidance – Where Do You Draw the Line? (in person)

Unlike other provisions in the Income Tax Act, the General Anti-Avoidance Provision (GAAP) is deliberately general. As a result, it is often a process of drawing a line in order to distinguish that between a permissible tax advantage that has been contemplated by Parliament and one which falls fowl of the legislature. This seminar will provide attendees with guidance in respect of the tax avoidance enquiry. Further details coming soon.

Presenters: Tom Fraser, Senior Tax Counsel, Legal & Technical Services, Inland Revenue; Paul Hale, Principal Advisor, Large Enterprises, Inland Revenue; Fred Ward, Partner, Russell McVeagh
