What are accelerated CCA calculations for?

This measure allows Canadian businesses to write off a larger share of the cost of newly-acquired depreciable assets (tangible and intangible) in the year the investment is made.

Only assets acquired and available for use after November 20, 2018 may qualify as AIIP.

What do preparers need to do?

The preparer answers Yes or No to the question Addition qualifies as an Accelerated Investment Incentive Property (AIIP) on the form and inputs the acquisition date.
