Breaking canadian income trust
Canadian income trust is a beneficial corporate structure alternative for businesses by reducing tax liabilities. Before the taxation of profits, income of the trust reports a high percentage of earnings to owners of shares, and cash payments. If after expenses have been covered, all other companies cash paid to holders of units, the company has the ability to completely avoid paying income tax.
