The simple fact is: Manitoba’s small businesses are facing a greater cost crunch than they did three years ago. Taxes are increasing and other costs are rising from every level of government, and the problem is expected to get worse with annual hikes coming to both Canada Pension Plan (CPP) premiums and carbon taxes.
While, Government of Manitoba increased the small business corporate income tax threshold to $500,000 to begin 2019, and lowered the Provincial Sales Tax (PST) to 7 per cent on July 1st, 2019, more tax relief is needed now to ensure the province’s tax competitiveness doesn’t erode further.
