Renovators and custom home builders, this forum will help you prepare for the impact of COVID-19 on contractual obligations, provide practical advice on the prompt payment legislation and the latest on small business tax rules.

As a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, many businesses will be reviewing their contracts to determine their obligations for the continued performance of their scope of work and what, if any, relief they may be entitled to. This session will provide valuable insight into understanding force majeure and delay clauses and offer practical advice on the steps that can be taken to ensure that your business is protected.

The COVID-19 outbreak that moved Ontario construction companies to respond so swiftly has also distracted them from twin generational changes: prompt payment and adjudication. Many companies have not yet implemented systems to help them adhere to these strict timelines. BDO advisors will outline the rules and offer ways to respond with an emphasis on technology.

The latest on tax for your business will be reviewed by George Dube, author, investor and tax partner in BDO’s Real Estate and Construction’s practice.
