Restoring the Labour-sponsored Venture Capital Corporations Tax Credit

2016 Federal Budget | March 22, 2016

To facilitate access to venture capital for small and medium-sized businesses and support saving by the middle class, Budget 2016 proposes to restore the Labour-Sponsored Venture Capital Corporations (LSVCC) tax credit to 15 per cent for share purchases of provincially registered LSVCCs for 2016 and subsequent tax years. The measure will provide federal tax relief of about $815 million over the 2015-16 to 2020-21 period.
