[Seminar] The Division of Business Assets on Marriage Breakdown: The Tax Issues Family Lawyers Need to Know


Managing the division of assets after the breakdown of a marriage is a complicated process involving many tax issues and considerations. The issues are even more complex where one or both spouses own a business or have other corporate interests.

In this seminar, Clark Wilson’s tax and trust lawyers, Richard Weiland, TEP and Areet Kaila, will provide an overview of the tax rules applicable to the division of corporate wealth and discuss strategies for dividing business assets in a tax-efficient way. The seminar will include a discussion of the following topics:

  1. Planning considerations when equalization payments must be satisfied out of corporate assets;
  2. Different types of corporate reorganizations that may be implemented when a business needs to be restructured or split up;
  3. Challenging valuation issues including how to deal with latent income taxes and tax attributes when valuing a company; and
  4. Additional considerations where a business is owned by a family trust or children directly.

When: May 10th, 2023. 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm. Light refreshments and time for networking will follow the seminar.
