The government’s proposed tax changes will affect all private business owners
The government has proposed the most significant tax changes we’ve seen in 45 years. These tax changes will affect all private business owners, regardless of their level of income, size of business or conformity with fiscal rules.
- We want the government to rethink its proposed tax changes to protect the growth of small businesses across Canada.
- We want the government to launch meaningful consultations with the business community to review tax policy without unfairly targeting independent businesses.
- We want the government to consider a comprehensive review of the Canadian tax system with a view towards fairness and simplification for all taxpayers and increasing the competitiveness of all businesses.
Our submissionThe Canadian Chamber of Commerce has submitted their policy submission to Finance Canada on the proposed tax changes. It outlines the problems and offers solutions.
