Is Gordon Bizar
Have you heard of
a technique where one purchases a corporation by having that
redeemable preferred shares to the “vendors” in exchange for their
their shares to the “purchaser” for $1 and then having the corporation
the preferred shares using working capital or funds loaned in by the
purchaser? Seems to me that the
proceeds received by the vendor would be taxable and thereby deprive
him of the
$500,000 exemption on sale of control of a CCPC and that during the
the “vendor” would have NO security as against the “purchaser” bleeding
corp. dry and moving on.
How to buy a
business with no money and no down payment either!
A friend of mine has
been approached with this scheme (or scam) to buy his successful
Seems a tad risky
for the vendor to me.
No tyranny is so irksome as petty tyranny: the
demands of policemen, government clerks, and electromechanical gadgets.

(For those who do not know Gordon Bizar has a nothing down "buy a
business" seminar which is intriguing and which I taught at one time
back in the 80's. Great for the buyer, usually bad for the
seller.)(The sender of this email actually taught it as well.)

Seller should NOT sell under terms you suggest but you knew that.
This started out getting the following message until it was
recognized as having come from an old best friend whom I have not seen
in person for about 10 or 12 years or more.

At the moment, I
am limiting my free

am just too busy to answer many questions and am limiting myself to 2 a
day except for my regular paying customers whom I do my dammedest to
answer the same day. And, if I have already answered one of yours free
in the last six months, it is unlikely that the system will let you
through with another free one now.
I am, however, adding
your name to our Q & A list and another
question may answer yours. AND, I have answered over 7,500 questions at

This is not intended to be definitive
but in general I am quoting $800 to $2,800 for a dual country tax
$800 would be one T4 slip one W2 slip
one or two interest slips and you lived in one country only - no self
employment or rentals or capital gains - you did not move into or out
of the country in this year.
$1,000 would be the same with one
$1,200 would be the same with one
business no rental
$1,200 would be the minimum with a
move in or out of the country. These are complicated because of the
back and forth foreign tax credits. - The IRS says a foreign tax credit
takes 1 hour and 53 minutes.
$1,500 would be the minimum with a
rental or two in the country you do not live in or a rental and a
business and foreign tax credits no move in or out
$1,600 would be for income from two countries for two
$2,800 would be all of the above and
you moved in and out of the country.
This is just a guideline for US /
We will still prepare Canadian only
(lives in Canada, no US connection period) with two or three slips and
no capital gains, etc. for $150.00 up.
With a Rental for $350
A Business for $350 - Rental and
business likely $450
And an American only (lives in the US
with no Canadian income or filing period) with about the same things in
the same range with a little bit more if there is a state return.
Moving in or out of the country or
part year earnings in the US will ALWAYS be $800 and up.
TDF 90-22.1 forms are $50 for the
first and $25.00 each after that when part of a tax return.
8891 forms are generally $50.00 to
18 RRSPs would be $900.00 - (maybe
amalgamate a couple)
Capital gains *sales) are likely
$50.00 for the first and $20.00 each after that.
