Stock options (equity compensation) Legal and Tax Considerations

Equity compensation is an essential aspect of compensating your employees as you grow your business. The taxation of equity compensation can be complex and is often not well understood.

Exclusively for Founders & Investors only. Join Steve Lukas of Harper Grey and Jason Cheng of PWC in this interactive 2 hour workshop on the tax and other implications of equity compensation (stock option plans).

In this workshop you will learn: · What the different types of equity plans are · Taxation differences between employees and independent contractors · What are the benefits of being and maintaining status as a "CCPC" · When do you recognize the benefit and when do you have to pay the tax · How to qualify for the lifetime capital gains exemption · What happens in the event of a loss on a business failure · What are the differences that apply if you hire a US citizen · Whether you are required to withhold and remit tax to CRA · What happens on a buyout or share exchange

Almost free: Last 3 workshops were full. Seating is limited. Quickly register at for a nominal $20 to ensure a seat and to cover out-of-pocket costs - only for Investors & Companies - not Advisors or Service Providers. No Drop-In Registration and No refunds.
