Tax Planning for Lower tax rate for CCPC
A private Canadian corporation that has at least 50% Canadian shareholder, called a Canadian Controlled Private Corporation or CCPC, is entitled to a lower rate of taxation on its active income of up to $500,000. If non-residents of Canada or public corporations own more than 50% of the shares the corporation loses its CCPC status and its entitlement to this lower rate of tax. Tax planning should be carried out by one of our Calgary tax lawyers to ensure profits do not exceed the $500,000 threshold.
