What tools are available so that you can achieve a better rate of transaction over time, while at the same time forecasting cash flows more efficiently?

Resource taxation (Oil & Gas, Mining) in Canada is subject to a variety of special rules under the Income Tax Act.  In particular, since the Resource industry is very capital-intensive, there are a number of special rules for classifying and deducting capital expenditures for exploration, drilling, plants, and both surface and in-situ development and construction.

This course will provide you with a basic understanding of the key tax laws that affect oil and gas companies that explore, develop, construct, produce, and buy and sell oil & gas properties.  It will cover both how and why the Canadian governments use the tax laws to regulate the industry.  It will also look at some of the differences between accounting and tax treatments, so when you receive information requests from the Tax department, you’ll have some understanding of what that information may be used for.

Instructor: Keith Raskob-Smith
