2013 P.E.I. Budget Substantively Enacted 

Canadian Tax Adviser


April 30, 2013


A bill to enact Prince Edward Island's 2013 budget received first reading in the provincial legislature on April 23, 2013. Bill 47 includes measures to increase the small business corporate income tax rate to 4.5% (from 1%), effective April 1, 2013. The bill also provides details that were not included in the budget on changes to the province's tax credit for non-eligible dividends.

Since the bill has received first reading and P.E.I. has a majority government, the budget measures are considered substantively enacted for purposes of IFRS and ASPE as of April 23, 2013.


For details of the budget measures, see TaxNewsFlash-Canada 2013-14, “Highlights of the 2013 P.E.I. Budget”.
