Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get about corporate tax filing from our clients:
All corporations must submit a T2 return for each tax year, even if there is no tax owed. This includes inactive corporations, tax-exempt corporations, and non-profit organizations. The only exceptions to this law are Hutterite colonies, tax-exempt Crown companies, and businesses that were registered charities throughout the year.
A non-resident corporation must submit a T2 return if they engaged in commercial activity in Canada, realized a taxable capital gain, or sold a taxable property in Canada at any time during the year. It’s crucial to remember that this responsibility still applies even if the corporation asserts that any earnings or gains realized are exempt from Canadian income tax as a result of a tax treaty. Therefore, the corporation is not needed to submit a T2 return in such circumstances if the disposition complies with all the requirements.
Contact Beck Tax and Accounting today to schedule a consultation and take the first step towards stress-free corporate tax filing.
The Schedules and the General Index of Financial Information (GIFI) are also included with the T2 form. Schedules provide the CRA with additional details regarding your corporation’s tax return and related filings. They include:
- Information schedules: general information and those relating to transactions
- Calculation schedules: net income, taxable income, deductions, taxes, and credits
GIFI is the standard list of codes used to prepare financial statements.

After each tax year’s end, you have six months to file your return. An organization’s fiscal year corresponds to its tax year.
You have to file the return by the last day of the sixth month after the end of the tax year when the corporation’s tax year ends on the last day of a month.
You should file the return by the same day of the sixth month after the end of the tax year when the last day of the tax year is not the last day of a month.
