Saskatchewan Bill 58 hikes large financial institutions' corporation capital tax rate.
The increased rate of 4% (from 3.25%) is effective for the period commencing on April 1, 2017. This measure was previously announced in the province's 2017 budget; however, please note that this bill does not contain any of the budget's other proposed changes.
Bill 58 received first reading on March 29, 2017. As a result, the corporate capital tax rate increase is considered to be substantively enacted for purposes of IFRS and Accounting Standards for Private Enterprise (ASPE) on March 29, 2017, the day it received first reading (as Saskatchewan has a majority government).
