Alberta Bill 10 received first reading on March 9, 2023. This bill contains several measures previously announced or confirmed in Alberta’s 2023 budget, including the framework for a new 12% non-refundable Agri-processing Investment Tax Credit. The tax credit is generally proposed to be available to qualifying corporations for eligible capital investments of at least $10 million made on or after February 7, 2023. The province previously announced that it also intends to bring forward regulations with more information on eligible expenditures and how to apply. For details on the new credit and other tax measures included in Alberta’s 2023 budget, see TaxNewsFlash-Canada 2023-07, “Highlights of the 2023 Alberta Budget”.

The corporate income tax measures included in Bill 10 are considered substantively enacted for IFRS and Accounting Standards for Private Enterprise (ASPE) purposes on March 9, 2023, the date the bill received first reading (as Alberta has a majority government). The corporate income tax measures are not considered enacted for U.S. GAAP purposes until the date the bill receives Royal Assent.
