03. Tax considerations for construction companies :

It is very important to note that profit on construction contracts is taxed by the CRA differently than it is calculated for financial statement reporting purposes. One key difference is that any amounts that have been recognized as revenue for accounting purposes but not yet billed (i.e. not invoiced and due for payment), such as holdbacks, are not considered taxable until they are billed and due. Thus, there is typically a deferral of the recognition of profit for tax purposes than for accounting purposes, which means less tax owing in earlier stages of the contract and more tax owing when the contract is completed.

In other words, if you have a 10% holdback receivable that is withheld on a construction contract’s billings, the contractor would include these holdback amounts as revenue for accounting purposes but not for tax purposes, and would not have to pay any income tax on the holdbacks until they become due, which is usually at the substantial completion of the project and release by the client.
