Corporate Income Tax Return
Securing your corporation’s financial health.
Corporate Income Tax Return (T2) must be filed by every corporation in all over Canada for their corporate tax return Vancouver. This is applicable even if the corporation in question has no tax payable for the year. Corporate pay income tax by filing a Corporate Income Tax Return Form 1120 and by paying the taxes as indicated by this return. Tax is paid on corporate income at the corporate level before it is distributed to individual shareholders as dividends. A tax credit is provided to individuals who receive a dividend to reflect the tax paid at the corporate level.
Corporate income taxes are paid at the corporate income tax rate, not at the personal tax rate. Types of corporations that must file a T2 include non-profit organizations, tax-exempt organizations and inactive corporations. It is mandatory for all corporations whose profit exceeds $1 million to file a Corporation Income Tax form, and can also be done electronically online. The form has to be filed within six months of the end of each corporation’s fiscal year. Corporations which are exempt from this rule are:
- Insurance corporations
- Non-resident corporations
- Corporations reporting in functional currency
- corporations exempt from tax payable under section 149 of the Income Tax Act (refer to Canada.ca for more info)
If a corporation required to file their corporate income taxes electronically does not adhere to the rules, the CRA will charge the corporation with a $1,000 penalty. This is why it is vital for major (and small start-up) corporations to have a personal tax advisor to ensure all strict rules and regulations are followed, and your company is benefiting from all available tax credits.
