Taxation of the QSSP

The role of BCF’s taxation group in share distributions eligible for the Québec Stock Savings Plan (“QSSP II”) consists primarily of obtaining the request for an advance ruling from the Quebec Ministry of Revenue confirming that the shares qualify for the QSSP II. The group also implementsthe reorganizations required prior to such distributions in compliance with the conditions stipulated by the QSSP II. Our taxation team has developed this expertise by acting on behalf of Quebec public companies and brokers.
