Can you claim Capital Cost Allowance (CCA)?

Note: Line 22900 was line 229 before tax year 2019.

If you are an employee earning commission income, you can claim CCA on your vehicle if you meet the employment conditions.

If you are an employee earning a salary, you can claim CCA on your vehicle if you meet the conditions outlined in Allowable motor vehicle expenses.

If you are an employed musician, you can claim CCA on a musical instrument if you had to provide the musical instrument as a condition of employment.

You do not have to claim the maximum amount of CCA in any given year. You can claim any amount you want, from zero up to the maximum allowed for the year.

For more information on CCA, read Archived Interpretation Bulletin IT522R, Vehicle, Travel and Sales Expenses of Employees.

To determine what class of depreciable property your motor vehicle or musical instrument falls into, see Classes of depreciable properties.
