Thus, the tax credit has been increased from 31% to 38.75% for a corporation that does not operate a mineral resource and is not a member of an associated group having a member who operates such a resource. The tax credit has been increased from 15% to 18.75% for other corporations.
The increased rates of the refundable tax credit relating to resources apply in respect of eligible expenses incurred after March 17, 2016.
