Royal Assent for New Brunswick Budget Bill

Royal Assent for New Brunswick Budget Bill

Province won’t be mirroring federal rules that adjust small business limits for certain CCPC’s

New Brunswick's budget implementation bill received Royal Assent on June 14, 2019. Bill 22 enacts the province's decision not to align with federal tax measures to phase out the small business limit for Canadian-controlled private corporations (CCPCs) based on passive income.

The corporate income tax measure in Bill 22 is substantively enacted for purposes of IFRS and Accounting Standards for Private Enterprise (ASPE) on May 30, 2019, the date the bill received third reading (as New Brunswick has a minority government). The corporate income tax measure in Bill 22 is enacted for U.S. GAAP purposes on June 14, 2019, the date the bill received Royal Assent.

Corporate income tax measure Bill 22 amends the New Brunswick Income Tax Act to deem the federal passive investment income grind to the small business limit to be zero for purposes of calculating the New Brunswick small business limit calculation.

Under the federal measures, the small business limit is phased out on a straight-line basis for CCPCs that, together with associated corporations, have between $50,000 and $150,000 of adjusted aggregate investment income for taxation years that begin after 2018.
