It's expected that 2021 will be just as volatile or more than last year. Private corporations are being bought or sold at record rates. If you're planning to raise financing, retire or expand domestically or globally, and are concerned about pending tax issues, BDO Canada and Gowling WLG host an in-depth discussion about how to prepare and manage these key decisions.

We've assembled an expert panel of accounting and legal professionals who, quite literally, wrote the book on taxation for private companies. They deliver valuable tips to consider when preparing to buy or sell a business.
