A tax credit for companies
that educate and entertain
The OIDMTC is a refundable tax credit for corporations developing interactive digital media products that intend to educate, inform or entertain the user (i.e. video games, e-learning programs, informational products). The program offers a credit on eligible Ontario labour expenditures, marketing, and distributing expenses for up to 40% of costs.
Several Canadian provinces offer digital media tax credits. These include Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, British Columbia, Manitoba, Alberta, and P.E.I. Each have their own distinct rules and regulations. A product that is eligible in one province may not be eligible in another, or may have a different tax credit rate.
We follow a clear methodology, built on tested know-how, and in full compliance with current legislation. We do the heavy lifting for you.
