When is the Tax Year for your corporation?

A corporation's fiscal year is its tax year. Corporations may or may not have year-ends on December 31 for tax purposes. The corporation has the flexibility to choose its fiscal year-end, but it must adhere to the maximum limit of 53 weeks (371 days). 

Tax Year for New Corporations:

Newly incorporated corporations in Canada can declare their tax year on their first T2 corporate income tax return after incorporation.


First Tax Year Start:

On the first T2 return after incorporation, the tax year start is set as the date of incorporation. This means that the initial tax year for a newly incorporated corporation begins on the day the corporation was officially incorporated.


Subsequent Tax Years:

For all subsequent T2 returns, the tax year start will be the day after the corporation's tax year-end.


On July 17, 2022, a corporation was set up. It decided to finish its tax year on June 30. From July 17, 2022, through June 30, 2023, will be its first tax year. The second tax year of the entity will run from July 1 to June 30 of 2024.

When is the deadline for corporate tax returns?

Filings for corporation income tax returns are required six months after the taxation year's end.


-Your T2 filing deadline is December 30, 2022, if your company tax year ends on June 30, 2022.

-Your T2 filing deadline is June 30, 2023, if your corporation tax year ends on December 31, 2022.

-Your T2 deadline is July 15, 2023, if your corporation tax year ends on January 15, 2023.
