What is a Section 85 Rollover?

A Section 85 rollover is a key provision in the Canadian Income Tax Act that enables the tax-deferred transfer of eligible property to a corporation. This provision is a strategic tool for business owners, real estate investors, and individuals, allowing the transfer of assets or shareholdings to other business entities without immediate tax implications. Section 85 rollovers are particularly valuable during business reorganizations, estate planning, transferring personal assets into a corporate structure or transferring shares from an individual to a holding company. Typically, The suggestion to engage in a Section 85 rollover for the purpose of transferring assets from one business entity to another often originates from a professional advisor, such as an accountant, lawyer, or financial planner.
