The federal government economic statement
On November 21, 2018, the federal government presented an economic statement. Certain of the announced measures relate to the capital cost allowance, Canadian development expenses as well as expenses for Canadian property relating to oil and gas. Modifications with regards to these measures will be integrated in the next version of Corporate Taxprep Classic scheduled to be released in January 2019.
