June 11, 2013


Quebec has enacted Bill 18, which includes various items mentioned in the former Liberal government's March 2012 Quebec budget. The provisions in Bill 18 are considered substantively enacted for purposes of IFRS and ASPE purposes as of May 29, 2013, when Bill 18 passed third reading in the Quebec legislature (Quebec has a minority government). Bill 18 received Royal Assent on June 5, 2013, making it enacted for U.S. GAAP purposes on this date.

The 180-page bill includes an enhancement of the tax credit for investments relating to manufacturing and processing equipment, measures regarding new financial services corporations, changes to the QST, and other measures announced in various Quebec 2011 and 2012 Information Bulletins.
