Small Business Tax Rate

The budget keeps the small business tax rate at 10.5% on the first $500,000 of business income. Furthermore, the budget precludes the multiplication of the small business deduction in certain partnership and corporate structures. As well, the budget repeals the eligible capital property regime, which will be replaced with a new capital cost allowance class. The use of life insurance policies to distribute amounts tax fee to shareholder has also been tightend up.
