design tax credit.
The Design Tax Credit allows for qualified Quebec corporations to receive a tax credit related to the salaries of designers, pattern makers and graphic artists. Whether your manufacturing process is overseas or local, you employ product designers in Quebec, or use external design consultants, you may be entitled to a tax credit of up to 24% of your employees' salaries.
This tax credit is available for companies in the areas of fashion, jewelry and industrial design, among others.
The Pay Equity Act requires all companies with 10 or more employees to perform an evaluation to ensure there is no systemic discrimination between predominantly female jobs and predominantly male jobs of equal value within their organization.
Since the enactment of the law in 1996, we have helped hundreds of companies ensure their conformity with the law and assisted in dozens of audit reconciliations.
Our expertise in the Pay Equity Act will ensure you are compliant with and conform to every aspect of the law.
1% training tax.
The Workforce Skills Development and Recognition Act, or 1% Training Tax, requires all Quebec organizations with a gross payroll over $2,000,000 to invest 1% of their payroll in training. There is a variety of activities that are considered admissible training, from internal on-the-job training to external classroom training, however they must all be supported with the required backup documentation.
We work with our clients to ensure all possible training activities are captured and documented in a professional, audit-proof manner. We can also recapture taxes paid unnecessarily over the last 4 years.
