Frequently Asked Questions

Resident corporations

According to Canada Revenue Agency, all resident corporations (except crown corporations and resident charities) have to file a corporate income tax (T2) return every tax year even if there is no tax payable. This includes but is not limited to the following:

  • Non-profit organizations
  • Tax-exempt corporations; and
  • Inactive corporations

Non-resident corporations

A non-resident corporation has to file a return if, at any time in the tax year, one of the following situations applies:

  • the corporation carried on business in Canada
  • the corporation had taxable capital gains in Canada
  • the corporation disposed of taxable Canadian property

This requirement applies even if the corporation claims that any profits or gains realized are exempt from Canadian income tax due to the provisions of a tax treaty. If you are unsure about your non-resident corporations filing requirements in Canada, its best to consult with a tax professional to ensure you are compliant.

Corporation income tax returns are due no later than six months after the business' year-end

If you don’t agree with the reassessment from a tax audit, you can file an objection with CRA before appealing the decision with the Tax Court of Canada.

The first step in our process is to review the assessment or reassessment, as well as the accompanying dispute letter. Next, we speak with the auditor and determine what grounds they have to dispute. After reviewing the evidence, we develop a response to contest the dispute letter if there is sufficient evidence to support it.  Finally, we’ll reach a resolution with the auditor. In the event that a resolution cannot be reached, the situation will be referred to a tax lawyer.

While it is not mandatory for every business to hire a corporate tax accountant, doing so can offer numerous benefits and potentially save you time, money, and stress in the long run. Generally, it's crucial to have a corporate tax accountant who understands the intricacies of corporate taxation. They can help ensure compliance and minimize the risk of costly mistakes or audits. 

In addition, corporate tax accountants have extensive knowledge and experience in tax planning. They can identify opportunities for tax deductions, credits, and incentives specific to your industry, helping you maximize your tax savings. By analyzing your financial situation and business goals, they can develop customized tax strategies that align with your long-term objectives. More importantly, a corporate tax accountant stays on top of the latest tax regulations and ensures that your business remains compliant.
