Bill C-19 Tax Deductions for New and Used Equipment Purchases

As a business owner, you're always looking for ways to make smart investments that will help you stay competitive and improve your bottom line. The Canadian government has introduced the Bill C-19 tax deduction for new or used equipment purchases, businesses impacted by the pandemic can save money and reinvest in their operations through tax relief.

The Bill C-19 tax deduction is a fantastic opportunity to do just that in 2023. This legislation allows companies to expend the full price of new or used business equipment in the first year they’re purchased, with a maximum deduction of $1,500,000 for 2023.

Let's say, for example, your company finances a new overhead crane for $100,000 in September 2023. The payments of $2,000 per month begin in October. That would equate to three months of payments made in 2023 for $6,000. Your company can then take a Bill C-19 deduction on the machine for the full amount ($100,000). At a 26% tax rate, that equates to a net tax savings of $26,000. That $26,000 comes right off the tax bill and stays in your company's bank account. The $26,000 in net tax savings minus the $6,000 paid out equals $20,000.

By acquiring the equipment, your company's 2023 is $20,000 better than it would have been had it not acquired the equipment at all. Plus, you get to use the equipment. What a great opportunity!
