FormsTo use the CEDIF exemption and qualify for the equity tax credit, a CEDIF corporation or co-operative, must file an Offering Document to be prepared by a CEDIF's board of directors and filed with Nova Scotia Economic Development (Chris Payne). Upon satisfactory review, copies of the document are forwarded to the Nova Scotia Securities Commission and the Department of Finance for concurrent review. Approval of the equity tax credit lies with the Department of Finance, whereas the Securities Commission will provide a letter of non objection for the proposed exempt offering after any objections have been cleared.
Specific forms and documents ( see Check List ) are to be filed with the Offering Document before an application for a CEDIF can be considered complete.
Upon receiving a non-objection letter from the Director of Securities, a Form 2 - Report of Trade and Schedule A - List of Purchasers must be filed with the Director within thirty days of the initial closing date and within thirty days of each subsequent closing date.
