Alberta Bill 2 received Royal Assent on June 11, 2018.
Bill 2 includes measures to introduce the Interactive Digital Media Tax Credit and modify the Alberta Investor Tax Credit, as described in the 2018 provincial budget. However, the province has not yet published key regulations needed to apply the changes in the bill.
The corporate income tax measures in Bill 2 are considered substantively enacted for IFRS and Accounting Standards for Private Enterprise (ASPE) purposes on March 14, 2018, which is when the bill received first reading in the provincial legislature (since Alberta has a majority government). The corporate income tax measures in Bill 2 are considered enacted for U.S. GAAP purposes on June 11, 2018, the date the bill received Royal Assent.
