The budget proposes no changes to the individual (personal) or corporate tax rates.

The budget proposes tax relief measures for certain investments and innovation projects. For instance, the budget includes a refundable tax credit for investments and innovation to be granted to a qualified corporation that acquires, after 10 March 2020 and before 1 January 2025:

  • Manufacturing or processing equipment
  • Computer equipment
  • Certain management software packages

Another tax relief item would be a “tax holiday” for a maximum of 15 years for large investment projects. The tax assistance relating to a large investment project could not exceed 15% of the total qualified capital investments relating to the project, determined on the date that the tax-free period begins.
