Clarification Regarding the Tax Credit for Technological Adaptation Services and the R&D Tax Credits
In the Budget Speech of March 30, 2010, the Québec Minister of Finance announced amendments to tax legislation that would make it clear that an expenditure incurred by a taxpayer is not eligible for the purposes of the refundable tax credit for technological adaptation services if it is otherwise eligible for the purposes of any of the following R&D tax credits:
- the tax credit for salaries and wages (R&D)
- the tax credit for university research or research carried out by a public research centre or a research consortium
- the tax credit for private partnership pre-competitive research
This clarification applies in regard to an expenditure incurred after March 30, 2010.
