    Leading provider of contract packaging software solutions recognized as one of the fastest growing technology companies in North America

    TORONTO, ONTARIO — November 17, 2015: Nulogy received Deloitte’s prestigious Technology Fast 50 and Fast 500 Awards for being one of the fastest growing companies in Canada and in North America. The company achieved a growth of 352% over the last four years, the entirety of which was organic growth. Nulogy was recognized as the 26th fastest growing company in Canada, and was also named as the 200th fastest growing company in North America. Nulogy’s growth is attributed to its award-winning, patented technology that enables supply chain operations to produce consumer products more safely, efficiently, and responsively. 

    “Over the past decade, Nulogy’s solutions have fulfilled the supply chain industry’s critical need to scale through innovation, while meeting the stringent needs of regulated supply-chain environments,” said Jason Tham, CEO at Nulogy. “Traditional computing simply cannot keep up with supply chains in constant motion, and our growth can be attributed to our ability to capture the potential of this moment. We do so by connecting and enabling manufacturing supply chains with the necessary intelligence, integration and information capabilities to bring new products to market.”

    Tham also credits the company’s success to its ability to attract and retain top talent, stating “Our team’s dedication to building great products that solve our industry’s most difficult problems is the reason we’ve been able to grow at such an exceptional pace.” Nulogy has also received the Aon Hewitt Best Employer Award for a second year in a row for its employee satisfaction and leadership practices.

    On April 21, 2015, the Minister of Finance, Joe Oliver, tabled the Conservative government’s tenth federal budget. This is the fourth budget released as a majority government. 

    Click here to view a summary of the tax measures that were announced in this budget. 

    Highlights include:

    • Increasing the annual contribution limit for TFSA’s – to $10,000 per year, beginning in 2015
    • Reducing the minimum withdrawal factors for Registered Retirement Income Funds (for ages 71 to 94), beginning in 2015
    • Extending the exemption of capital gains tax to donations of proceeds on the disposition of private corporation shares and real estate, subject to certain conditions
    • Simplifying the foreign asset reporting system for tax years that begin after 2014 where the cost of relevant foreign assets held at any time in the year is less than $250,000
    • Reducing the small business corporate tax rate on the first $500,000 per year of qualifying active business income of a Canadian-controlled private corporation (CCPC) from 11% to 9% by 2019. This is good news for small businesses – it will allow them to retain more after-tax cash for investment purposes
    • Extending the accelerated Capital Cost Allowance rate for manufacturing and processing machinery and equipment to 2026, based on a 50% declining-balance rate.  This is good news for manufacturers and is intended to encourage investment

    We invite you to contact your local Grant Thornton office to discuss any questions you have regarding any of the proposed measures.
