Bill S-710/2021 – Freight expense tax credit for small and medium-sized companies of the fruit and vegetable chain.
The purpose of the Bill is to strengthen the competitiveness conditions of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) of the fruit and vegetable chain and to promote development with distributive equity and opportunities.
To achieve this goal, the Bill proposes that micro, small and medium-size enterprises whose main activity is primary, packaging, industrial or commercial production of goods related to the fruit value chain (citrus, olives, grapes, pome fruit, stone fruit, etc.) receive a set of tax benefits by deducting from their tax obligations the expenses incurred in transporting their products.
Given the lack of necessary information on the functioning of the sectoral chain, the OPC is not able to assess the fiscal impact of the proposed measure.
