Federal Budget Extends Mineral Exploration Tax Credit until March 31, 2019

| 1 minutes

On February 27, 2018, Finance Minister Bill Morneau tabled in the House of Commons the Liberal Government’s third budget, Equality + Growth = A Strong Middle Class (“Budget 2018”).  Budget 2018 proposes to extend, for another year, until March 31, 2019, eligibility for the 15-per-cent mineral exploration tax credit on eligible expenses under flow-through share agreements. The mineral exploration tax credit helps junior exploration companies to raise capital from  individual investors to finance “grassroots” mineral exploration away from an existing mine site. For a discussion of these tax measures as well as others in Budget 2018, please see McCarthy Tétrault’s Budget 2018 Commentary.
