Contributor — resident in Canada within 60 months after contribution

(10) In applying this section at each specified time, in respect of a trust's taxation year, that is before the particular time at which a contributor to the trust becomes resident in Canada within 60 months after making a contribution to the trust, the contribution is deemed to have been made at a time other than a non-resident time of the contributor if

(ain applying the definition "non-resident time" in subsection (1) at each of those specified times, the contribution was made at a non-resident time of the contributor; and

(bin applying the definition "non-resident time" in subsection (1) immediately after the particular time, the contribution is made at a time other than a non-resident time of the contributor.

Application of subsections (12) and (13)

(11) Subsections (12) and (13) apply to a trust or a person in respect of a trust if

(bthe original trust

(i) is deemed to be resident in Canada immediately before that time because of paragraph (3)(a),

(ii) would be deemed to be resident in Canada immediately before that time because of paragraph (3)(a) if this section were read without reference to paragraph (a) of the definition "connected contributor" in subsection (1) and paragraph (a) of the definition "resident contributor" in that subsection,

(iii) was deemed to be resident in Canada immediately before that time because of subsection (1) as it read in its application to taxation years that end before 2007, or

(iv) would have been deemed to be resident in Canada immediately before that time because of subsection (1) as it read in its application to taxation years that end before 2007 if that subsection were read in that application without reference to subclause (b)(i)(A)(III) of that subsection; and

(cit is reasonable to conclude that one of the reasons the transfer or loan is made is to avoid or minimize a liability under this Part that arose, or that would otherwise have arisen, because of the application of this section (or the application of this section as it read in its application to taxation years that end before 2007).

Deemed resident contributor

(12) The original trust described in subsection (11) (including a trust that has ceased to exist) is deemed to be, at and after the time of the transfer or loan referred to in that subsection, a resident contributor to the transferee trust for the purpose of applying this section in respect of the transferee trust.

Deemed contributor

(13) A person (including any person that has ceased to exist) that is, at the time of the transfer or loan referred to in subsection (11), a contributor to the original trust, is deemed to be at and after that time

(athe following conditions are met:

(i) the particular property (and property, if any, for which it is, or is to be, substituted) was not, and will not be, at any time acquired, held, loaned or transferred by the particular person or partnership (or any person or partnership with whom the particular person or partnership does not at any time deal at arm's length) in whole or in part for the purpose of permitting any change in the value of the property of a corporation (that is, at any time, a closely held corporation) to accrue directly or indirectly in any manner whatever to the value of property held by a non-resident trust,

(ii) the Minister is satisfied that the particular property (and property, if any, for which it is, or is to be, substituted) is described by subparagraph (i), and

(iii) the particular property is identified in prescribed form, containing prescribed information, filed, by or on behalf of the particular person or partnership, with the Minister on or before

(A) in the case of a person, the particular person's filing-due date for the particular person's taxation year that includes that time,

(B) in the case of a partnership, the day on or before which a return is required by section 229 of the Income Tax Regulations to be filed in respect of the fiscal period of the particular partnership or would be required to be so filed if that section applied to the partnership, or

(C) another date that is acceptable to the Minister; or

(bat that time

(i) the particular property is

(A) a share of the capital stock of a corporation,

(iv) property that is identical to the particular property can normally be acquired by and sold by members of the public in the open market, and

(v) the particular property, or identical property, is listed on a designated stock exchange.

Anti-avoidance

(15) In applying this section,

(aif it can reasonably be considered that one of the main reasons that a person or partnership

(i) is at any time a shareholder of a corporation is to cause the condition in paragraph (b) of the definition "closely held corporation" in subsection (1) to be satisfied in respect of the corporation, the condition is deemed not to have been satisfied at that time in respect of the corporation,

(ii) holds at any time an interest in a trust is to cause the condition in clause (h)(ii)(A) of the definition "exempt foreign trust" in subsection (1) to be satisfied in respect of the trust, the condition is deemed not to have been satisfied at that time in respect of the trust, and

(iii) holds at any time a property is to cause the condition described in subparagraph (14)(b)(ii) to be satisfied in respect of the property or an identical property held by any person, the condition is deemed not to have been satisfied at that time in respect of the property or the identical property;

(bif at any time at or before a specified time in a trust's taxation year, a resident contributor to the trust contributes to the trust property that is restricted property of the trust, or property for which restricted property of the trust is substituted, and the trust is at that specified time an exempt foreign trust by reason of paragraph (f) of the definition "exempt foreign trust" in subsection (1), the amount of the trust's income for the taxation year from the restricted property, and the amount of any taxable capital gain from the disposition in the taxation year by the trust of the restricted property, shall be included in computing the income of the resident contributor for its taxation year in which that taxation year of the trust ends and not in computing the income of the trust for that taxation year of the trust; and

(cif at a specified time in a trust's taxation year it is an exempt foreign trust by reason of paragraph (h) of the definition "exempt foreign trust" in subsection (1), at a time immediately before a particular time in the immediately following taxation year (determined without reference to subsection (6)) there is a resident contributor to, or resident beneficiary under, the trust, at the time that is immediately before the particular time a beneficiary holds a fixed interest in the trust, and at the particular time the interest ceases to be a fixed interest in the trust,

(i) the trust is deemed, other than for purposes of subsection (6), not to be an exempt foreign trust at any time in the trust's taxation year (referred to in this paragraph as its "assessment year") that ends (for greater certainty as determined under paragraph (6)(a)) at the time that is immediately before the particular time,

(ii) the trust shall include in computing its income for its assessment year an amount equal to the amount determined by the formula

A – B – C
whereA

C

is the total of all amounts each of which is the amount of a contribution made to the trust in the period that begins at the initial time and ends at the end of its assessment year (in this paragraph referred to as the "interest gross-up period"), and

A/B × 42.92%
whereA

is the amount determined under subparagraph (ii) in respect of the trust for the particular taxation year, and

B

is the number of the trust's taxation years that end in the interest gross-up period.
