    Farmers facing an increase in HST examinations

    Over the past 12 to 18 months, Canadian farmers have been subjected to a significant increase in HST examinations from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). There has always been the potential for close scrutiny, but the instances of this have increased due to an overall change in the CRA’s approach in recent months. While the agency still conducts full-blown audits, it has shown a growing preference for more targeted work. Rather than go to the trouble of sending someone to do an inspection in person, the CRA can look at HST data and quickly determine whether something has been missed or over-claimed. As a result of these examinations, many farmers have had to pay back HST or collect it where they did not in the past. With that in mind, it is important for farmers to know what the CRA is looking for and where it is finding the most costly errors.

    The opportunities and pitfalls of farmland ownership

    As advisors, we are often asked whether farmland should be held in a corporation or personally. The question arises often in the context of incorporating farming operations. Previous Farm Alerts discussed the merits of incorporating as a way of reducing taxes due to low corporate tax rates and deferral of personal income. It is important to consider the tax impact of current and future transactions involving the farmland to become comfortable in that decision.

    In August 2019, Equinox Fitness, the parent company of luxury fitness brands Equinox, PURE Yoga, Blink Fitness and SoulCycle, made headlines when it was reported that the company’s chairman and part-owner was holding a fundraiser for President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign. The chain of gyms and studios had developed a reputation for being LGBTQ-friendly over the years, so it was hardly a surprise when this new development struck a chord with many of its LGBTQ members and allies, resulting in a highly publicized boycott

    The new legal economy

    For several years now, I have been talking about the concept of a “legal market.” When I first began using the term, it wasn’t in wide circulation — when discussing big-picture issues that affected everyone in the law, lawyers tended to talk about the “legal profession,” which neatly excluded everyone who wasn’t a lawyer. Sometimes, I would see a reference to the “legal industry,” a term I didn’t much care for either — “industry” summons images of factories and smokestacks and a degree of sophistication in production methods that did not describe legal services at all.
