Small Business Deduction

Income Tax Act s. 125

The small business deduction is a reduction in corporate taxes for Canadian controlled private corporations, or CCPCs.  The reduced rate of tax is available on active business income up to the corporation's business limit for the year.  The federal business limit is $500,000 for 2011.  It was increased from $400,000 in 2008 to $500,000 for 2009 and later years.

 

Eligibility for the small business deduction also depends on the amount of the corporation's taxable capital employed in Canada.  For more information see the information on the small business deduction in the Canada Revenue Agency T2 Corporation Income Tax Guide.
