2018 HOT TOPICS IN TAX
Changes to the Taxation of Work-in-Progress
May 10, 2018
Changes to the Taxation of Work-in-Progress was one of five presentations included in the May 2018 Hot Topics in Tax: Considerations for Your Practice Structure, Billing Practices and Income.
Brian Janzen, a chartered professional accountant with Deloitte Canada, provides an overview of changes to the taxation of work-in-progress (WIP) implemented by the federal government’s Budget 2017. The option to use billed-basis accounting to exclude the value of WIP from income has been eliminated. This applies for taxation years beginning on or after March 22, 2017, with a 5-year transition period to phase in the inclusion of WIP into income. This presentation may serve as a starting point for you to initiate a conversation with your accountant about the impact of this change on your law practice, billing practices and 2018 year-end tax return.
