Canadian Tax Adviser


December 17, 2013


Bill 7, which increases the tax rate on non-eligible dividends to 38.74% (from 38.56%) effective January 1, 2014, received Royal Assent on December 6, 2013. Bill 7 also provides for the gradual phase-out of the additional deduction for credit unions, mirroring the federal changes announced in the 2013 federal budget.

The provisions in Bill 7 are considered substantively enacted for purposes of IFRS and Accounting Standards for Private Enterprise (ASPE) as of November 13, 2013, when Bill 7 received first reading in the provincial legislature (as P.E.I. has a majority government). Bill 7 is enacted for U.S. GAAP purposes on December 6, 2013, the date the bill received Royal Assent.
