Module 10: Transfers of property among family members
The transfer of property between persons not dealing at arm’s length is one of the elements that must be considered in taxation to ensure that there are no unexpected tax consequences. The ITA contains rules to prevent tax benefits inconsistent with the spirit of the ITA when people are not dealing with each other at arm’s length. These rules apply mainly where the beneficiary of the transfer or loan of property does not give the transferor sufficient consideration or there is an unacceptable attempt to split income.
To reduce taxes on death, the situation can be planned by carrying out an estate freeze, which involves estimating the taxes payable on death and limiting them to this estimate. This module describes some different freezing techniques that are available.
Module 10 focuses on (1) your technical knowledge in taxation, and (2) your professionalism in respect to the integrative approach. The technical material mainly focuses on the tax treatment of gifts and non-arm’s length transactions, the attribution rules that limit the ability to split income within a family unit to take advantage of the progressive tax rates, and the usefulness of the estate freeze mechanism for reducing taxes on transferring wealth to the next generation. From an integrative perspective, professionalism includes relations with clients, their family, and the professionals with whom the CGA is required to work, as well as with CRA and any other government authority.
So that you can make sure that you have assimilated the planning and reorganization concepts seen throughout the course, the module closes with two comprehensive cases that require the application of the different rules you studied in TX2 . The module…...

The purpose of which is the expression of an opinion concerning the financial statements as a whole. * Knowledge of a company’s system for preparing information in not necessary in an interim review report. * There is no disclaimer of opinion in the scope paragraph. * The standard audit opinion and final paragraph appear to be similar if not identical. The final paragraph should be focusing on the “negative assurance” and should not be identical to the audit opinion that Baker & Baker should not have been giving. * The date of the review should be dated later than March 31, 2013 due to the fact that the end of the interim review work is later than the date specified in the report. b) Rewrite the report Report of Independent Auditor’s Review The Board of Directors and Stockholders Micro Mini Company We have reviewed the balance sheet of Micro Mini Company at March 31, 2013.

...Module A The Simplex Solution Method A-1 A-2 Module A The Simplex Solution Method he simplex method is a general mathematical solution technique for solving linear programming problems. In the simplex method, the model is put into the form of a table, and then a number of mathematical steps are performed on the table. These mathematical steps in effect replicate the process in graphical analysis of moving from one extreme point on the solution boundary to another. However, unlike the graphical method, in which we could simply search through all the solution points to find the best one, the simplex method moves from one better solution to another until the best one is found, and then it stops. The manual solution of a linear programming model using the simplex method can be a lengthy and tedious process.Years ago, manual application of the simplex method was the only means for solving a linear programming problem. Now computer solution is certainly preferred. However, knowledge of the simplex method can greatly enhance one’s understanding of linear programming. Computer software programs like QM for Windows or Excel spreadsheets provide solutions to linear programming problems, but they do not convey an in-depth understanding of how those solutions are derived. To a certain extent, graphical analysis provides an understanding of the solution process, and knowledge of the simplex method further expands on that understanding. In fact, computer solutions are......

...response to details requested from Lea Lazarus concerning the details of transactions carried out in 2011 and 2012 as well as the tax treatment that was used for those transactions in the said same years. 2011 and 2012 Transactions Transaction details: 2011: Lea Lazarus owned 2,000 Class Z shares of Private Ltd. a CCPC at January 1, 2011. Lea had purchased these shares for $10 each in the year 1998 when the PUC was $5 per shares. Each of the shares was convertible into one Class Y share. Lea exercised her option on January 8, 2011 and converted 1,000 of the Class Z shares to 1,000 Class Y shares which had a FMV of $20 per share and a legal PUC of $8 per share. 2012: There was a mutual agreement conducted on June 28, 2012 where Private Ltd. redeemed 500 Class Y shares for $25 per share. Lea is the sole shareholder of the Class Z shares and also became the sole shareholder of the Class Y shares, which are not voting shares. Tax consequences: Under subsection 51(1), there is no disposition of shares. The ACB of the Class Y shares will be the same as the ACB of the Class Z shares, which is $10 per share. The 1,000 Class Z shares that have an ACB of $10,000 are converted to 1,000 Class Y shares that will have an ACB of $10,000. As a result of the conversion, the capital increased which resulted in a reduction in the PUC as per paragraph 51(3)(a). See details below. PUC reduction (A – B) x C/A = (8,000 – 5,000) * 8,000/ 8,000 $3,000 PUC of the 1000 Class......

The loan was repaid by the end of the next taxation year (December 31, 2014) as required by subsection 15(2.6). The fact that the loan bears interest at the market rate means there should be no imputed interest benefits to Marc. b. 1) If the shares issued to Sophie-Anne are not in a separate class, the PUC of the shares held by her will be less than the $25 per share that she paid to the corporation. The other shareholders contributed $10 per share, and under the definition of paid-up capital in subsection 89(1), the PUC of a share of a class is equal to the total PUC of the class, divided by the number of issued shares of that class.

...MODULE 1 1. Discuss the importance of Comparative and International Education (CIE) as a course. The Comparative and International Education is considered as a global, cross cultural, and transdisciplinary curriculum that prepares its graduates to work in and with schools – both locally and internationally – as agents of change in classrooms, schools, and educational systems as a whole.  Comparative and International Education as a course is considered vital because it prepares educators like myself to analyze, assess, and evaluate educational practice, policies in wide variety of social and educational settings. It also promotes a broad understanding of educational institutions, systems and their programs/curricula. Comparative education examines how countries plan for the expansion, upgrade, and improvement of their educational system. It imparts a wider understanding on the origins of the challenges within and outside the school system, providing us the opportunity to create and explore solutions on the said challenges. Moreover, the study in comparative and international education prepares researchers, teachers, and planners who are interested in education across nations and cultures. Various modes of inquiry and the intellectual orientations of several disciplines are used to investigate, from a comparative and/or cross-cultural perspective, the following aspects of education in one or more geographical regions of the world: educational......

Module 10 Discussion

...gone from Ithaca for about 20 years — the first 10 spent fighting the Trojan War, the last 10 trying to get home. Odysseus is a king who fought in the Trojan War; but before he left he promised his wife that if he don’t return before his son grows a beard then she was to find suitors to take his place to rule as king, but in the mist of him coming home the goddess Athena arranged for storms to blow the Greeks off course as they attempted to sail home from the war. She was outraged because a Greek warrior had desecrated her temple by attempting to rape Cassandra (daughter of the last king of Troy) in that sacred place. Worse, the Greeks had not punished the man. Although Athena intervenes on Odysseus' behalf repeatedly throughout the epic, her curse originally causes his wanderings. So now with him wandering trying to get to his goal which is home after 10 years of fighting, the 10 more years it takes him to get home he is now worried about his kingdom because of what he promised and asked of his wife because With Odysseus gone, all that he has his kingship, his wealth, his home, and his wife and son is in jeopardy. His wife Penelope finds herself surrounded by unwanted suitors because she is the key to the throne and to Odysseus' wealth. Her new husband would, at the very least, have a distinct advantage in the competition for a new king. Because of such thing he was lost wondering to get home till he finally got home after 10 years, so in life that shows that he also......
