CPP payments

Arrangement did not constitute an employee profit-sharing plan: CPP payments required

The Federal Court of Appeal just decided that an accountant who received payments from a professional corporation he created did not properly create an arrangement that constituted a true employee profit-sharing plan. It was necessary for the professional corporation to make an election that payments would be based on profits; failing that, it was necessary for the professional corporation to have a set formula stating an amount to be computed by reference to profits so the employer was obligated to pay that amount to the trustees under the arrangement.
