It is now late May 2018 and you, CPA, have just finished meeting with your partner, Ms. Hong. Ms. Wong wants your help with a client of hers.

Garden Supplies Co. (GSC) has had a new shareholder buy shares. Ms. Wong wants you to tell her if GSC is a resident of Canada for tax purposes in 2018 and describe the personal tax consequences that Mrs. Gardiner will have from her 2018 share sale. You can ignore the acquisition of control rules. Also, given the list of GSC’s 2018 expenditures in Exhibit I, calculate the total 2018 expenses that are deductible in 2018 when computing net income for tax purposes. GSC is very profitable and wants to claim the maximum amount of deductions possible. You do not need to comment on non-deductible items.

Note: you will lose 1 mark for each incorrect amount included in your calculation of Mrs. Gardiner’s personal tax consequences on her share sale and on the total 2018 expenses that GSC can deduct from net income for tax purposes. Additional information about GSC is provided in Exhibit I.
