Modified payroll rebate for IBM in Bedford

The McNeil Government is giving IBM a payroll rebate of up to $10 million to create 250 more jobs at its Client Innovation Centre in Bedford, according to CBC.

This agreement alters the timeline of one reached in 2012 making Big Blue eligible for $12 million for 500 jobs over eight years. IBM says it’s well ahead of that target.

The head of Nova Scotia Business INC, Laurel Broten, called it a vote of confidence in the province and a good deal for taxpayers.
