Employee Share Purchase Tax Credit

The Employee Share Purchase Tax Credit offers employees (including directors and officers of an eligible corporation) the opportunity to buy into and own a portion of a business under an Employee Share Ownership Plan (ESOP). The aim of the program is to support business growth, facilitate succession planning for family businesses and promote employee participation in business success. Those who buy shares from a registered ESOP will qualify for a partially refundable 45 percent tax credit.
