Montreal, October 18, 2022 – On October 5, 6 and 7, Martin Delisle, tax litigation partner and head of the Business Group, participated as a guest speaker for the Annual Conference of the Association de Planification Fiscale et Financière du Québec (“APFF”) on the panel of the conference entitled “Update on subsection 55(2) I.T.A. – Review of the new features of the 2020s! In particular, he discussed the anti-avoidance provision in subsection 55(4) I.T.A. where it is reasonable to consider that one of the main purposes of one or more transactions is to avoid the taxation of a capital gain by making certain persons related for tax purposes.
It should also be noted that the APFF Congress devoted a conference to the impact of the decision in favour of the taxpayer in the file Succession Georges Robillard v. The Queen, 2022 TCC 13 (CanLII), argued by Martin Delisle and Lisa-Marie Gauthier from our firm. This decision, which was favourable to the taxpayer, set out important comments made by the Court with respect to “post-mortem pipeline” transactions.
