What is the NB Small Business Tax Investor Credit?

The New Brunswick Small Business Investor Tax Credit is a 50% non-refundable personal income tax credit of up to $125,000 per year to eligible individual investors who invest in eligible small businesses in the province.  

The New Brunswick Small Business Investor Tax Credit Program started August 1, 2003. CFIB played an integral part in helping develop the NB Small Business Investor Tax Credit, thanks to the suggestion of a member. It is a perfect example of how members like you can make effective changes.

The program was designed to provide an important source of capital by increasing access to equity financing for New Brunswick small businesses while encouraging investment by New Brunswick residents in New Brunswick small businesses.
