(St. John’s, January 16, 2014) Severing employment and incorporating is no easy decision, according to the latest issue of EY’s East Coast Offshore. Individuals must consider a number of Canadian Income Tax Act provisions and Canada Revenue Agency administrative positions before making the leap to incorporate.

The report — which highlights emerging legislative, regulatory and competitive issues affecting Atlantic Canada’s oil and gas industry — looks closely at the forces behind why or why not to incorporate in the industry. The report walks through a number of these considerations as well as:

  • Highlights from EY’s semi-annual Capital Confidence Barometer
  • Nova Scotia deep-water long-term growth potential
  • Security breach risks

EY’s Canadian oil and gas team is available to offer more insight into the report’s findings. To reach a spokesperson, or for more information, please contact a member of our national PR team.
