Important changes introduced by the federal government propose to amend the federal tax rules to significantly accelerate capital cost allowance (CCA) for capital investments. A summary of those changes is included in the ebook.

The CCA and ECE rules are complex, and their application often involves questions of both law and fact. The difficulty in applying these rules is illustrated by the numerous administrative positions taken by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), as well as the substantial body of case law on the subject.

Topics include:

  • current vs. capital expenditures
  • CCA – general rules
  • specific restrictions and special rules for lessees
  • CCA classes
  • eligible capital expenditures
