Chapter History S4-F15-C1, Manufacturing and Processing

Introduction

The purpose of a Chapter History page is to highlight any amendments to the information contained in an interpretation bulletin that is now reflected in a chapter of an income tax folio as well as to identify any subsequent amendments to a folio chapter. It outlines amendments that have been made as a result of legislative changes and proposed legislative changes, precedential court decisions, as well as new or revised interpretations of the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

Except as otherwise noted, all statutory references herein are references to provisions of the Income Tax Act, R.S.C., 1985, c.1 (5th Supp.), as amended and all references to a Regulation are to the Income Tax Regulations, C.R.C., c. 945, as amended.

Update February 16, 2017

The wording in ¶1.20, ¶1.25, ¶1.44 and ¶1.52 of the French version only has been revised for readability purposes.

¶1.28 and 1.32 have been revised to improve consistency in the use of the term “related” versus “associated”.

Example 2 has been revised to clarify that Corporation B is related to Corporation A and to refer to “bien” instead of “bâtiment” in the second paragraph. These changes affect only the French version of the Chapter.
