The $800,000 Capital Gains Exemption

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a blog post on how the $800,000 Capital Gains Exemption ("CGE") Isn't a Gimme for Corporate Small Business Owners and how many private small business owners incorrectly assume they will automatically be entitled to the CGE should they sell the shares of their corporation.

Last week I was interviewed on the contents of the aforementioned blog by Promod Sharma for his Tea at Taxevity series. Promod, is an actuary by trade and insurance advisor. He is also the writer behind the blog Riscario Insider. The interview can be found  here. If you own shares in a Canadian non-public corporation, you should probably watch this interview.
