Legal, Tax & Accounting Strategies for the Canadian Real Estate Investor Reviews
Interesting read. I'm certain that the tips and tricks are valuable, but for me it was a solid introduction to the mechanics of the Canadian real estate environment. The biggest downfall was that the authors did do a fair bit of self-promotion.
Provide a great overview of the various factor to consider in Real estate investing from a tax, legal and accounting perspective.
Enjoyed how specific this book was to the Canadian market, but it was difficult to get through. Much more technical than expected, and not super accessible for the average reader. Would recommend other books before this one, unless you were an experienced real estate investor looking to brush up on some tax and legal strategies.
Pretty tough to get through all the parts. Seems comprehensive but seems to lack a bit of practical advice. This may be the only time where I have appreciated taking tax courses in university.
