  • The BC Budget and Construction Companies - ICBA - Independent Contractors and Businesses Association of British Columbia
    remember this is a transfer of this amount from the private sector into the public sector Here s a look at some of the impacts on your company and your personal bottom lines Corporate Tax Increase The increase of this tax to 11 from 10 pushes the B C rate higher than Alberta Saskatchewan and Ontario It only applies to corporate income over 500 000 The first 500 000 is levied at 2 5 the small business tax rate MSP Premiums Premiums have been hiked about four per cent This will increases costs for companies that pay their employees MSP or a portion of it Pooled Retirement Pension Plans Though not in the budget proper in his budget speech the Finance Minister indicated that legislation is coming before the election making Pooled Retirement Pension Plans a reality in B C It s something all provinces are doing in the wake of the federal government creation of the PRPP program last year What this will mean is that all employers without an RRSP or pension plan will have to make a PRPP available to their employees through payroll deduction It s important to note that the system doesn t require company contributions and that an RRSP program like those offered by ICBA Benefit Services Ltd offers companies more flexibility and an exemption to the program Return of the PST Also not officially in the budget April 1 also marks the return of the PST In the construction industry that means we will lose one of the big advantages we had under the HST the ability to flow through sales taxes on business supplies and materials Those costs will now be embedded into project costs As well the PST is a complicated tax that is costly to administer so that will be a drag on productivity for companies Lower Personal Exemption Also a PST rather than a budget issue owners and their employees will pay more provincial tax starting this year because of the reduction of the basic personal exemption from 11 354 to 10 276 this year and around 9 859 next year That means tax will have to be paid on the difference Personal Tax Increase For the next two years the government has hiked the provincial income tax to 16 8 from 14 7 on personal income over 150 000 The way this plays out is for a person making 160 000 they will pay 200 a year more For someone earning 300 000 it translates to a 3 100 annual increase It is important to note that despite the increases the amount of provincial income tax paid is still far below what would have been paid in 2001 4 800 less in tax for someone earning 160 000 and 11 100 less for someone with a 300 000 income Post navigation ICBA deal can help find workers Training Tuesday Treat Me Tender Laws Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment Menu
