Applicants who used their corporation fishing income

While the Fish Harvester Benefit and Grant Program allows harvesters who operate under a corporation to use financial figures from their corporation to apply, it aims at providing financial support to individuals only.

All T4A slips are therefore issued in the name of the individual who applied.

Earnings from the Fish Harvester Benefit and the Fish Harvester Grant are to be reported in your personal income tax – this includes harvesters operating under a corporation that opted to apply using fishing income figures from their corporation.
