The fifth edition of this highly successful book explores the inbound international tax issues of non-residents in Canada who derive income from Canadian sources. Tax issues are analyzed in terms of the application of the relevant sections of the Income Tax Act and provincial statutes, the application of the Canada-U.S. Income Tax Convention, and the application of Canada’s other tax treaties.
This edition has been updated with new case law and recent changes to legislation and CRA pronouncements for practitioners who deal with the subject matter and need to stay current on the issues in order to properly advise their clients.
Other significant updates include:
Discussions and commentary on the above developments would be of interest to Canadian accounting and legal practitioners alike who act for individual or corporate non-resident clients. Corporations with U.S. employees working on short term assignments in Canada would also be interested in this area of taxation. Also, non-resident professional advisors, particularly in the U.S., who need a general reference guide to assess the Canadian tax implications of certain past or proposed transactions would also find the content useful.
