Do you like getting tax refunds for your company?

One of the concepts underlying the Canadian income tax system is integration.  This means that even though a business owner will pay corporate income tax on profit earned in their company as well as personal tax on salaries or dividends paid out to them from the company, integration will take effect and generally prevent the business owner from being exposed to double taxation.

One of the ways integration occurs is through corporate tax refunds being credited or paid to a company when the company pays a taxable dividend to its shareholders.  There are a number of factors that determine whether or not a corporate tax refund will be available to your company.  To find out how integration and corporate tax refunds affect your company, contact a Manning Elliott tax advisor today.
