Alberta's Bill 10, which includes the framework for a new 12% non-refundable Agri-processing Investment Tax Credit, received Royal Assent on March 28, 2023. The tax credit is generally available to qualifying corporations for eligible capital investments of at least $10 million made on or after February 7, 2023. Alberta previously announced that it also intends to bring forward regulations with more information on eligible expenditures and how to apply. This new credit was announced in Alberta’s 2023 budget among other tax changes.

The corporate income tax measures in Bill 10 are considered enacted for U.S. GAAP purposes as of March 28, 2023 (the date the bill received Royal Assent). These measures were 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.
