Grants, subsidies, and rebates
You may get a grant or subsidy from a government or a government agency to buy depreciable property. When this happens, subtract the amount of the grant, subsidy or rebate from the property's capital cost.
You may have paid GST/HST on some of the depreciable property you acquired for your business. If so, you may have also received an input tax credit from us.
The input tax credit is government assistance. Therefore, subtract it from the property's capital cost. If you get an input tax credit for a passenger vehicle you use in your business, use one of these methods:
- For a passenger vehicle you use 90% or more for your business, subtract the amount of the credit from the vehicle's cost.
- For a passenger vehicle you use less than 90% for your business, do not make an adjustment in the current tax year. Instead, subtract the amount of the credit from your beginning undepreciated capital cost (UCC).
If you cannot apply the grant, credit, or rebate you received to reduce a particular expense or to reduce an asset's capital cost, include the total on the line “Grants, credits, and rebates” in the income area on form T2121.
You may get an incentive from a non-government agency to buy depreciable property. If this happens, you can either include the amount in income or subtract the amount from the capital cost of the property. If the rebate is more than the remaining UCC in the particular class, add the excess to other income.
