Bill 39 includes a proposal to increase the small business income threshold to $500,000* (from $350,000), effective 1 January 2017.

Bill 39 does not include Nova Scotia's new innovation rebate measure. In its September 2017 budget, the province confirmed that it would proceed with a new innovation rebate program to help businesses invest in certain capital projects. This program was previously announced in the province's spring 2017 budget to provide a 15% rebate.
