April 2, 2020 – B.C.’s Venture Capital Tax Credit Program – Helping Small Businesses Raise Investment Capital


B.C.’s Venture Capital Tax Credit program helps small businesses raise capital by providing investors with a 30% tax credit on the value of their investment.  Businesses registered in the program have a range of activities, including: manufacturing and processing; research and development of proprietary technology; destination tourism; interactive digital media; clean technology, and advanced commercialization. The way the program works:

  • Businesses must meet qualifying criteria and be registered with the Ministry of Jobs, Economic Development and Competitiveness.
  • Once registered, businesses can sell shares to B.C. resident investors – usually accredited investors or friends, family and business associates – who are then eligible to receive a 30% tax credit on their investment.
