I understand the question but honestly believe there is no credible answer.

I file my own taxes don’t trust my accountant buddies to bend the rules properly. Years ago quite a few of my uni friends went to work for Rev Can now known as CRA would offer advice for free architect work. Wait isn’t that a taxable benefit?

Never want to offer advice of this sort but my retired accountant purchased a 10k equivalent to cad a few years ago, watch was a Franck Muller watch. He tossed box and papers, one week after returning to Canada watch dies during our lunch, had to pay a few hundred to repair the off the shelf ETA movement. He could have mailed the papers home but you know the thing about accountants, don’t like to get caught when they bend the rules.

Something NOS GOLD. Brand doesn’t matter as long as watch is no longer current production.
