Revenue Canada’s Computer Capital Cost Allowance
There are many reasons why now is a great time to upgrade your Point of Sale System , but the most pressing reason expires on January 31, 2011! This month is your last opportunity to take advantage of a rare tax incentive offered by Revenue Canada.
As described on the Canada Revenue Agency website , “the accelerated capital cost allowance (CCA) for eligible computers announced in the 2009 budget allows businesses to claim 100% of computer costs (including systems software) purchased after January 27, 2009 and before midnight, January 31, 2011.”
To qualify for this rate, the asset must:
- be situated in Canada;
- not have been used, or acquired for use, for any purpose before it is acquired by the taxpayer; and
- be acquired by the taxpayer:
- for use in a business carried on by the taxpayer in Canada or for the purposes of earning income from property situated in Canada; or
- for lease by the taxpayer to a lessee for use by the lessee in a business carried on by the lessee in Canada or for the purpose of earning income from property situated in Canada.
