Our aim for 2010 is to donate far more blood and blood products than in previous years. With members, students, staff and our friends and family, we can save more lives.

CGA-BC Leads Accounting Designations in Growth
BIV Recession or not, the accounting profession continues to grow in British Columbia. That was one of the key discoveries Business In Vancouver made when it tracked the growth trends of the players in its annual Largest Professional Organizations survey. What's more, it found that CGA-BC was the fastest growing accounting body in the province.

The article, titled "Economic Downturn Fails to Slow Growth in Key Professions" in the May 4-10 issue of BIV, reported that, "Since 2007, the number of certified general accountants (CGAs) in B.C. has grown by 15.2%, or nearly 1,290."

All three accounting designations grew by more than 10 per cent over the past four years.

The article quotes CGA-BC Director of Member Services Pamela Skinner, CGA, as saying the demand for accountants remains relatively stable regardless of how the economy is trending.

"'The bottom line is, accounting services are not a luxury item,' said Skinner. 'They are a necessity that provides some protection from the ups and downs of business cycles.'"

Quarter Century Club Grows By Leaps and Bounds
Quarter Century Club - May 14

The club with the 25 year waiting list got a little bit less exclusive earlier this month as 235 CGA-BC members joined the Association’s Quarter Century Club with a dinner and award ceremony at the Wall Centre Hotel.

More than 135 members, family and friends celebrated the milestone, and each new QCC member received a gift from the Association as well as congratulations from 1985 CGA-BC President Helen Knowles, FCGA, and 2010 President John Pankratz, FCGA. As each CGA crossed the stage, a short bio of the honouree’s accomplishments since certification was read aloud and a picture of the member (circa 1985) was screened. Cheers, much laughter, and the occasional good-natured heckle, ensued. In addition to the new Quarter Centurions, nine members were recognized for doubling the score—that’s right, nine members reached their diamond anniversary with CGA-BC.

Congratulations to:
  • William Cannell, CGA
  • Ronald Jansen, CGA
  • Ronald McGregor, CGA
  • James Boivin, CGA
  • Norman Hoff, CGA
  • Helen Marsen, CGA
  • Peter Podovinikoff, CGA

Association Hosts Reception for B.C.'s Business Schools
Peter Norwood

CGA-BC has worked hard to develop productive and rewarding relationships with the province's colleges and universities. Nowhere was this more evident than at the Business Educators Articulation Conference (BEAC 2010) hosted by Langara College April 28. The conference is designed to foster common understanding regarding course objectives, outcomes, teaching methodologies, as well as other relevant issues.

More than 150 business educators from over 25 post-secondary institutions across the province attended the two-day event to hear from leading experts on a broad range of thought-provoking topics such cultural diversity, use of technology, the influence of social media, and psychographic analysis of Millennials (aka Generation Y) .

CGA-BC hosted the Conference's opening reception and dinner, and Merge Gupta-Sunderji, CGA, provided the evening's keynote presentation titled Why Does the Lobster Cast Off Its Shell? (The simple answer: So it can grow.) Merge's engaging style was well suited to the receptive audience, who learned six strategies to consciously push the limits of their comfort zones so they could continue to learn and grow.

For its part, CGA-BC received further proof that efforts to build stronger partnerships with all post-secondary institutions in finance and accounting are paying off. Conference Chair and Peter Norwood expressed his gratitude to CGA-BC for its long-time support of the event.

"Conferences such as these would not happen without sponsors and partners like CGA," said Mr. Norwood, Department Chair of Langara's School of Management. "We are grateful for the wonderful support by CGA."

However, this paled in comparison to the praise from the many educators and academic officials who stated how much they appreciated the Association's support of their respective institutions. "You guys [CGA-BC] have been tremendous supporters of Okanagan College," said Faculty Advisor David Cram. "It really means a lot to us."

By building such strong and mutually beneficial relationships, CGA-BC is ensuring that it will remain the accounting designation of choice in B.C.

Denim and Dazzle Combine for Friday Fun Night
Chris Wattie The organizers of September's CGA Conference 2010 have been somewhat coy about disclosing any details concerning the theme for the Conference's Friday Fun Night. In fact, in the recently published Conference brochure the Conference Committee revealed very little about what is perennially the most anticipated and popular event on the Conference's social calendar. But now, the secret is out!

This year, the CGA-BC Conference's Friday Fun Night will draw on the spirit of the West and the allure of glitz and glamour for a fantastic event that has been dubbed From Denim to Diamonds.

The timeless appeal of the New Frontier and the glitter of bling will serve as inspiration for a night that will feature a sumptuous buffet dinner and entertainment options such as a Western shooting gallery, barrel racing and line dancing. Rumours about a mechanical bull continue to swirl among the CGA community, which only adds to the buzz for what promises to be a fabulous evening.

Details are being finalized, so please visit the conference page of the website for more details in coming weeks. In the meantime, dust off your cowboy hats, shine your boots and polish your diamonds for a Friday not to be missed.
Share Your Volunteer Experience to
Promote Your Favourite Charities
Volunteer For years you’ve heard how B.C.’s CGAs and CGA students are influential, ethical and highly respected by both the business community and general public. What sometimes gets overlooked is the tremendous work we do away from the office for our communities—as volunteers for schools, teams, and charities from A to Z.

If you are a volunteer, whether president of the board of a charitable society, coach to your child’s soccer team, or regular visitor to your local seniors centre, we want to know about your good work. Just fill in our five question survey and we’ll post the results on our website. We’ll learn how diverse our volunteer efforts are and you’ll have a chance to promote the charities and institutions near to your heart as we link to the sites of those not-for-profit organizations.

As word spreads and our volunteer database grows, we’ll feature a Volunteer of the Month in each issue of CGA Update. It’s a win-win-win-win situation as you, your charity, end users, and your Association make new contacts and benefit from new opportunities and heightened reputations.

Get the ball rolling by telling us about your Volunteer Work and what it means to you. We promise it can be done in a minute. Even if you don’t currently volunteer but would like to put your name forward as willing to perform treasury services or board work for a local charity, we’d like you to visit the survey page.
Team CGA Invites You to Join the 24-Hour Relay
The Money Mart Easter Seals 24-Hour Relay
June 19-20, 2010 at Swangard Stadium


Money Mart What convinced us to register? For some of us it’s the fun, slightly goofy spirit of the event—“Reason No 632: The starter’s gun is a water pistol.” For others it’s the chance to socialize with CGA-BC’s extended family and help our community. The fact that we needn’t be great runners and we can walk, stroll or march sold a few more on entering.

For all of us, the Relay is more than just staying up all night with our friends running in circles; it’s 24 hours that can make a lifetime of difference in the lives of children with disabilities.

This is no ordinary year for Team CGA: 2010 marks the 25th consecutive year of tearing up the track. Some members, such as team leader Gary Mah, CGA, have been with us since the beginning, so it must be a fun time to keep him coming back year after year. Twenty-five years—that’s a feat worth celebrating, and an event worth joining.

See the CGA Running team webpage.

Reason 519

The excitement is building for the 2010 Money Mart Easter Seals 24 Hour Relay for the Kids.
To join Team CGA, contact Gary Mah at MahG@dnv.org.

If you have questions about the relay, contact the organizers at Relay Central: (604) 873-1865 or info@24hourrelay.com.
Pension System Needs Drastic Makeover, Says CGA-Canada Report
Pension System A new report released April 30 by CGA-Canada reveals a disturbing 92 per cent of private sector defined benefit pension (DB) plans are in a deficit position, a number which has more than doubled over a five-year period. Pension funding deficits have climbed from $160 billion in 2003 to an estimated $350 billion in 2008 and continue to grow.

Gauging the Path of Private Canadian Pensions: 2010 Update on the State of Defined Benefit and Defined Contribution Pension Plans is available at: http://my.texterity.com/cgaresearchreports/
pensions2010
.

"Pension plans should not be allowed to metamorphose into empires of debt," says Anthony Ariganello, President and CEO of CGA-Canada. "The recent events with national companies such as Nortel Networks, AbitibiBowater, Fraser Papers and CanWest have highlighted a need to better preserve pension plan solvency and improve member protection."

The Canadian retirement system should afford greater protection and unsustainable DB pension plans and inadequate defined contribution (DC) pension plans should be replaced with hybrid models that draw upon the best elements of each.

"Canadian's ability to maintain a financially comfortable and healthy lifestyle is bleak unless the retirement system undergoes a drastic makeover," says Rock Lefebvre, Vice-President of Research and Standards at CGA-Canada. "Pension plans should not operate in a manner that unduly borrows from future generations to pay the present one."

The report also reveals problems with the taxation system. Lefebvre points out that current tax rules prejudice Canadians without employer-sponsored plans. Even if registered retirement savings plan (RRSP) limits are reached, these Canadians cannot save as much for their retirement as Canadians who have employer-sponsored pension arrangements.

To remedy this, CGA-Canada supports Canadians having equal opportunity to build retirement income outside of pre-existing plans. CGA-Canada recommends the development of a new pension system that is sustainable, simple to administer and cost effective —that harmonizes the efforts of federal and provincial stakeholders, recognizes pension benefits as deferred compensation and above all, is fair to all Canadians both now and in the future.

WorkSafeBC Added to PEP Fold
The Association's Partners in Employment Program (PEP) took a major step earlier May 17 when it signed up WorkSafeBC, one of the province's largest employers and a jewel in the PEP portfolio.

WorkSafeeBC is the 118th employer partner to join PEP. In recent weeks, the Association has also signed agreements with Canada Metal, maker of sacrificial diodes for the marine industry; JYSK, a large household retail company based in Port Coquitlam; and BCAA, the giant automobile and insurance not-for-profit association.

CRA Launches Videocasts to Target New Generation of Donors
To promote charitable donations among young Canadians, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has produced a series of videocasts titled Giving to Registered Charities 101. The series informs young Canadians about how charities are regulated in Canada and how to donate wisely.

"By educating donors, we build confidence in the charitable sector as well as an appreciation for the work they do," said Minister of National Revenue Keith Ashfield.

"It is important that donors of all ages be able to access the information they need to make informed donation decisions in a format they can understand."

See the videocasts at donors website or the CRA's YouTube channel."

The series is composed of three individual videos:
  • What's it all about?" introduces individuals to how charities become registered in Canada.

  • What's in it for me?" shows individuals the important role that charities play in Canada and the tax incentives available to taxpayers.

  • Where do I begin?" gives individuals the basic information they should know before donating to registered charities.
For more information on how to be an informed donor, see the donors website, or call 1 (800) 267-2384.

Bookkeeping and Other Related Services May Require Public Practice Registration
At the September 2009 CGA-BC Annual General Meeting, a motion was passed that changed the definition of public practice. This change means that certain additional activities including certain aspects of bookkeeping services now require registration in public practice. In order to accommodate this, a second limited registration category has been established: “Limited Registration–Other.”

Members are required to register in this category if they are providing any of the following:

  • forensic accounting, financial investigation and financial litigation support services; and/or
  • an accounting service insofar as it involves summarization, analysis, advice, counsel or interpretation but excluding an accounting service which is incidental to the provider’s primary occupation which is not public accounting; and/or
  • statutory filing services (e.g., preparation of GST, PST, T4s, T5s, payroll withholdings).
These members will be exempted from public practice registration requirements with the exception of the following, which must be provided at the time of registration:

  • payment of all applicable fees; and
  • proof of purchase of professional liability insurance.
To assist members with their understanding of the new definition of public practice, a Frequently Asked Questions listing is being provided. This listing includes a link to the registration form.

A separate administration fee of $150 for failure to renew and maintain professional liability insurance by August 1 will be levied.

If public practice registration fees and/or professional liability insurance premiums remain unpaid 30 days after the due date, the member is without notice, deemed to have resigned from public practice unless written notice of extenuating circumstances is received within 30 days from the original due date.

Note that member dues are also payable on or before July 1 each year, after which a $150 administration fee applies. In accordance with Bylaw B114 (a), if annual dues remain unpaid after July 31, the member is without notice deemed to have resigned from membership unless the Board has accepted a written notice of extenuating circumstances.

CRA Does An About-Face: Life Insurance and Shareholder Benefits

Graystone

By Deborah Graystone, CGA

This article is general in nature and should not be relied upon to replace specific professional advice.

The aspect I find both challenging and perplexing about practicing tax is that the rules of the game are always changing. Just when you think you have it mastered, they change the rules. These changes often affect tax compliance and planning advice going forward; however, occasionally it can affect tax and estate plans that were put in place years ago, requiring one to dig out the old files and ensure that the plan will still unfold as expected. Case in point: The recent CRA about-face on its policy of whether taxable benefits will apply in certain circumstances regarding corporately held insurance.

Private corporations often acquire life insurance policies to provide funds in the event of a significant shareholder's death. A typical situation could be described as follows: An individual shareholder (A) holds 100 per cent of the voting shares of a given Canadian corporation (Parentco). Parentco holds 100 per cent of the voting shares of another Canadian corporation (Subco). If Parentco is a simple holding company with no income apart from possible dividends from Subco, you may have the situation where Subco is the policyholder of a life insurance policy on the life of A and pays the premiums; however, the beneficiary of the life insurance policy is Parentco.
