T1135 info

I'm looking to acquire 35% of a business, my portion will be worth over 100K so I believe I will need to file a T1135. Anyone have experience with it? My financial planner who does my taxes for no charge because I'm a client doesn't want to take on the T1135 responsibility. Thoughts? Recommendations?

From what I've read:

The T1135 has been simplified somewhat in recent years:

What kind of thoughts and recommendations are you looking for? Whether or not you need to file a T1135? Or how it should be done?

Also, when you say you're going to acquire a stake in this business. Are you acquiring shares of a corporation?
