Taxability of Grants to Business

The nature of a grant and its taxability is dependent on the purpose of giving the grant (i.e. the grantor’s motive). In general, all grants extended to businesses are taxable, except for grants that are capital1 in nature.

Taxability of Grants from Ministries and Statutory Boards

Grantor’s Motive Nature of Grant Tax Implication Example
(i) To supplement income or defray operating costs Revenue Taxable Grants for training employees or meeting rental expenses
(ii) To fund infrastructure or fixed asset investments Capital Not taxable Grants for acquiring machinery
(iii) To fund project without stating specifically whether funding is to defray operating costs (i) or to fund infrastructure (ii) Revenue Taxable Grants for funding a project without stating whether it is to be used specifically for training employees or acquiring machinery (hybrid grants2 )

1 Generally, grants disbursed to businesses specifically earmarked for funding of infrastructure or fixed asset investments are considered capital in nature.

2 Subject to the achievement of certain desired outcomes, a Ministry or Statutory Board may allow the freedom to utilise the approved funds as they deemed fit. Such grants or financial support are otherwise known as “hybrid grants”.
