The Canadian Audio-visual Certification Office (CAVCO) has announced a new policy (CAVCO Public Notice 2010-01) relating to the submission and retention of documentation required to prove that an individual is Canadian for purposes of obtaining "Canadian content" tax credits. Instead of producers being required to collect and retain copies of documents (such as passports or birth certificates), CAVCO will be maintaining a central database of documents submitted directly to CAVCO by individuals.
From the text of the CAVCO public notice:
1. To be eligible to receive a tax credit under the CPTC program, production companies must, among other things, staff "Canadians" as producers and in a minimum number of key creative positions. "Canadian" is defined in subsection 1106(1) of the Income Tax Regulations (Regulations) to include Canadian citizens and permanent residents.
