Manitoba manufacturing investment tax credit

Important notice 

A permanent extension to the Manitoba manufacturing investment tax credit has been announced. See what's new for Manitoba corporations

You can earn this credit on the cost of qualified property you acquired before January 1, 2021, mainly for manufacturing or processing goods for sale or lease. Qualified property includes new and used buildings, machinery, and equipment made available for use.

The credit will first be applied to reduce the Manitoba corporation income tax payable. Then you can claim a part of the credit you are entitled to claim in a tax year as a refundable credit.

The non-refundable part of the credit is 1% of the cost of qualified property. For property acquired before April 12, 2017, the rate is 2%.

The refundable part of the credit is 7% of the cost of qualified property. For property acquired before July 1, 2019, the rate is 8%.

You can carry back an unused non-refundable credit to the 3 previous tax years from the tax year in which you acquired the property. You can also carry forward the unused credit to the 10 tax years that follow the tax year in which you acquired the property.

The acquired date for purposes of this credit is the date that the property became available for use.
