Extension of the Credit for Contributions to the Health Services Fund Announced in the Tax News Article of April 30, 2020
Employers that have an establishment in Québec and qualify for the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) for a qualifying period can also claim the credit for contributions to the health services fund for the same period.
The CEWS was initially granted for a 12-week period (March 15 to June 6, 2020). However, the federal Minister of Finance announced on May 15, 2020, that it would be extended for another 12 weeks until August 29, 2020. Therefore, the period covered by the credit for contributions to the health services fund has also been extended through August 29, 2020.
