Canada’s 2015 Budget: Report of the Standing Committee on Finance

By Robert Robillard - 13 December 2014

This Report of the Standing Committee on Finance has recently been released.

Not much is said or suggested about international taxation in spite of the BEPS initiative going on. The report highlights that the federal government should do “more” to identify “offshore tax evaders”, “reduce the use of tax haven”, lower the Canadian corporate tax rate, assess the impacts on the Canadian economy before implementing the recommendations of the BEPS initiative.

And that is it.

Hopefully, the 2015 federal budget will provide more guidance to Canadian companies soon…

The complete Report of the Standing Committee on Finance titled Towards Prosperity: Federal Budgetary Priorities For People, Businesses And Communities is available here (en français ici).
