Taxable Capital Employed in Canada

Taxable capital employed in Canada is an amount used in the calculation of the Capital Tax on large corporations.  The Federal capital tax is now only paid by financial institutions and life insurance companies.

A corporation is considered a large corporation if the total taxable capital employed in Canada at the end of the tax year for it and its related corporations is greater than $10 million.

Taxable capital employed in Canada is also used to determine if a Canadian Controlled Private Corporation (CCPC) qualifies for the small business deduction (SBD).  The federal business limit of $500,000 begins to be reduced when a CCPC's taxable capital reaches $10 million, and is eliminated when taxable capital reaches $15 million.

A corporation's taxable capital is, in general, the total of its shareholder's equity, surpluses and reserves, and loans and advances to the corporation, less certain types of investments in other corporations.
