The enhanced rate would apply only for the tax year in which the equipment or vehicle first becomes available for use. It would be subject to the following phase-out:
100% after March 1, 2020 and before 2024
75% after 2023 and before 2026
55% after 2025 and before 2028
The CCA would be deductible on any remaining balance on a declining-balance basis at a rate of 30%.
