Resources to support your business
2023 National Agriculture Conference
Watch the videos from BDO Canada’s 2022 National Agriculture Conference, where industry experts gathered virtually to discuss important issues facing farms in Canada.
In June 2022, the Underused Housing Tax (UHT) Act received Royal Assent and is now law. If you operate your farm through a Canadian corporation or Canadian partnership and it owns a residential property, you will be required to file a UHT return even if no UHT is owed due to applicable exemptions. We walk you through the details.
Failing to plan for the future of your farming business—such as ownership transfer— could result in missed opportunities to benefit from farm specific tax exemptions and deferrals, and potentially leave the family scrambling. Learn how to optimize the use of the lifetime capital gains exemption during ownership transfer.
What you should know about the new agriculture financial reporting standards
Until 2022, there was no standardized method for valuing live or still growing assets. A new standard—ASPE Section 3041—has changed that and provides guidelines for creating year-over-year comparable financial statements.
