2018 Federal Budget and Corporate Tax Changes


FREE WEBINAR: The 2018 Federal Budget and Corporate Tax Changes
A Breakdown of What These Changes Could Mean for Your Firm

Last July, Minister Bill Morneau proposed changes to how Canadian-controlled private corporations (CCPCs) are taxed, which could have had a significant impact on family and employee owned consulting engineering firms. As part of a coalition of over 80 other business associations, ACEC-Canada fought on behalf of its members by opposing these changes.  In the fall, the government announced concessions to their original proposals, which were part of the recent 2018 budget.
