It is often easy to overlook certain tax credits that may apply to your company or your clients. This can occur where the tax credit is not well “publicized” or it only applies in rare situations.
Here are a few tax credits to keep in mind and share with your staff or clients:

  1. Regional Opportunities Investment Tax Credit

The Regional Opportunities Investment Tax Credit supports business investment, economic growth and job creation in designated regions across the province that lagged in employment growth between 2009 and 2019.
It is a 10% refundable Corporate Income Tax credit for corporations that invest more than $50,000 to construct, renovate or acquire eligible commercial and industrial buildings in these regions. The Regional Opportunities Investment Tax Credit will:

  • help address regional disparities by bringing greater opportunities and prosperity to businesses, workers and families in these communities
