Victory for self-employed computer specialists assessed by Revenu Québec in a case supported in Court by the AQIII

MONTREAL, June 15, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The Quebec Association of IT Freelancers (AQIII) welcomed the Quebec jurisprudence created by the judgment in the T.A.P. Consultant inc. case, a ruling considered crucial for the industry of information technology freelancers in Quebec.

In the decision he handed down, Judge André Lachapelle, of the Court of Quebec, confirmed the tax status of the independent small business of T.A.P. Consultant inc., stating that the latter was not a personal services business (PSB) as Revenu Québec claimed, but an active business and thus eligible for the small business deduction (SBD).

"The AQIII is now asking the government to help, rather than hinder, entrepreneurship by applying fair taxation to self-employed information technology workers and small business owners," pointed out the president of the AQIII, Adrian Dafinei. "Small computer business owners assume the same risks and responsibilities as other companies. We want to receive a just tax treatment."  See Press release

The Quebec Association of IT Freelancers (AQIII) is a private non-profit association made up of more than 1,200 experienced independent IT contractors. It facilitates the availability of IT mandates, networking, the sharing of information among IT consultants and access to discounts with specific suppliers.
