2 La version française de cette publication est intitulée Supplément 1997 au Guide T2 Déclaration de revenus des sociétés de 1995.
3 Introduction T he purpose of this publication is to advise corporations of the changes that may affect them for the 1996 and 1997 taxation years. Since there are not many changes affecting the 1997 T2 Corporation Income Tax Return, we decided to publish this supplement containing changes for the 1996 and 1997 taxation years rather than a full guide as in previous years. The 1995 T2 Corporation Income Tax Guide and this 1997 supplement contain the information needed to complete the 1997 return. If you did not keep your 1995 guide, you can get a copy from your tax services office or tax centre. When using the 1995 T2 guide, the following item numbers reflect proposed legislation that has become law: Items 18, 19, 31, and 44 Fiscal period of a professional corporation that is a member of a partnership Items 47 and 77 SR&ED Item 56 Ecological gifts Items 68 and 70 Income from an active business Item 68 Reduction to business limit Items 70 and 71 Additional refundable tax on investment income Item 71 Corporate surtax Items 81 and 83 Part IV tax Item 85 Part I.3 tax Item 88 Temporary surtax on financial institutions Item 112 Canadian film or video production tax credit refund Note Items 19 and 68 contain proposed legislation. If you have access to the Internet, many of our publications are available on line. Our Internet address is: What s Coming Processing redesign We are currently redesigning our processing system for T2 returns to improve efficiency, enhance service, and position the Department for future simplification. We are replacing manual verification with electronic validation so we can process your return faster and more accurately, and issue refunds on a more timely basis. This redesign effort will result in changes to the corporation return and related schedules. We will be reprinting forms to clearly specify the information we need, and are consulting with commercial software developers to ensure that their packages reflect the changes to the forms. We will provide details well before the changes become effective. If you have access to the Internet, you can visit our Internet site on the Corporate Income Tax Redesign Project at: Filing electronic corporation income tax returns Revenue Canada wants to expand its electronic services for businesses and to support the Government's strategy of promoting the use of electronic commerce. We are working with Alberta Treasury and the Ontario Ministry of Finance, and holding parallel discussions with the Ministère du Revenu du Québec, to develop a compatible electronic filing system for corporation income tax returns using Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). General index of financial information We are developing a new method for filing financial statement information. The General Index of Financial Information (GIFI) consists of a four-digit code for items commonly found on balance sheets and income statements. Corporations will match items on their financial statements with the related code and submit the amount and applicable code as part of their return when they file electronically, or print a copy and file it with the T2 return and schedules when they file their return using commercial tax preparation software programs. A shorter version will be available on paper for those corporations which file using departmental printed forms. Standardized Accounting Standardized Accounting (SA) is the development of a single accounting system for all business programs administered by Revenue Canada. SA will include such programs as corporate income tax, GST/HST, and customs, and will eliminate the duplication that currently exists, and allow us to provide better service to our clients. Corporate Income Tax will be the first line of business to migrate to the new accounting system in the fall of We will send you an information package concerning SA as the implementation date approaches. Our service pledge We will complete the initial assessment for 90% of all T2 returns within 90 days. Changes Where do you file the T2 return? Item 5 in the 1995 T2 Corporation Income Tax Guide has been replaced by the following. Please note that the highlighted areas have changed locations from last year. 3

Qualifying environmental trust For taxation years that end after February 18, 1997, it is proposed that the reference to a mining reclamation trust will be replaced by qualifying environmental trust.

For more information, see item 111 in the 1995 T2 Corporation Income Tax Guide.

Lines 113 and 115 Charitable donations 1997 taxation year For taxation years that begin after 1996, the February 1997 budget proposes to increase the limit on charitable donations to 75% of net income. This limit will be increased by the following amounts: 25% of the taxable capital gains resulting from gifts of capital property (other than for gifts of ecologically sensitive land) made in the year; 25% of the total of all amounts each of which is a taxable capital gain from the disposition of a non-qualifying security of a corporation that is making a gift to a qualified donee, and 25% of the lesser of: the amount of recapture of capital cost allowance included in income for the year that results from the donation of depreciable property of a prescribed class; or the lesser of capital cost or the fair market value of each such gift of property of the class in the year taxation year For taxation years that begin after 1995, the limit on charitable donations has increased. Therefore, when calculating the amount to enter on line 115, you can claim up to the total of: 50% of the amount of line 111; and 50% of the amount of taxable capital gains that results from the gift of capital property included in the donor s taxable income for the year. For more information, see item 55 in the 1995 T2 Corporation Income Tax Guide. Lines 117 and 118 Gifts to the Crown For taxation years starting after December 31, 1996 and for gifts made after February 18, 1997, the February 1997 budget proposes to decrease the limit you can claim on gifts to 75% of net income (exempt from this are gifts of 5
6 ecologically sensitive land and Canadian cultural property, which remain at 100%). All gifts made after this date will now be considered charitable donations and subject to the same rules as charitable donations. The total amount of charitable donations made in the year will include any gifts to Canada or a province. Any gifts made before February 19, 1997, or made pursuant to a written agreement before this date, will remain at 100%. Gifts made before February 19, 1997, should be claimed on line 117 and any gifts made after February 18, 1997, on line 113 of the T2 return. Enter at line 118 of the T2 return, the amount of the gift at line 117 or the amount needed to reduce net income to nil, whichever is less. Line 116 Cultural and ecological gifts Enter the total amount of gifts consisting of ecologically sensitive land and Canadian cultural property on line 116 of the T2 return. Capital gain on donations The February 1997 budget proposes that only 37.5% of any capital gain resulting from the making of a gift after February 18, 1997 to a qualified donee (other than a private charitable foundation) be included in income. The types of property eligible are: a security listed on a stock exchange; a share or a unit of a mutual fund; an interest in a segregated fund; and a prescribed debt obligation. On Schedule T2S(6), clearly identify that the capital gain is the result of making a gift to a qualified donee under proposed paragraph 38(a.1). For the 1997 and subsequent taxation years, a corporation that has made a gift of a non-qualifying security to a qualified donee may claim a reserve in respect of any gain realized on this security. A reserve can only be claimed if the donation is not deducted for tax purposes and the donee does not dispose of the shares. This reserve can only be claimed in taxation years ending within 60 months of the making of the gift. The reserve must be included in income if any of the following occur: the corporation becomes a non-resident or tax exempt; or the donee disposes of the security. To claim this reserve, clearly identify it on the income statement, Notes to the Financial Statements, Schedule T2S(1) or Schedule T2S(13). For more information, see item 40 in the 1995 T2 Corporation Income Tax Guide. Line 225 Taxable income An amendment has been made to the calculation of taxable income for the purposes of calculating the small business deduction (SBD), if the corporation has claimed a foreign non-business income tax credit. If this is the case, subtract from the corporation s taxable income 10/3 of the amount that would be deductible as a foreign non-business income tax credit (line 211), calculated as if such credit was determined without reference to the refundable tax on Canadian-controlled private corporation s (CCPC) investment income under section (line 212). Also subtract 10/4 of the amount you are deducting as a foreign business income tax credit. In addition, reduce taxable income by any amount that, because of federal law, is exempt from Part I tax. On line 225, page 3 of the T2 return, enter the corporation s taxable income for the purpose of calculating the SBD. Line 221 Investment tax credit The February 1997 budget proposes that for claims made after February 18, 1997, capital costs and expenditures for property qualifying for an investment tax credit are restricted to the amount of costs or expenditures identified on Form T2038(CORP), Investment Tax Credit Corporations. This form must be filed within 12 months after the filing due date for the year the expenditures were incurred. For more information, see item 77 of the 1995 T2 Corporation Income Tax Guide. The definition of investment tax credit is amended for taxation years that begin after A corporation can now earn an investment tax credit of 20% of its scientific research and experimental development (SR&ED) qualified expenditure pool at the end of the year. In general, this pool will consist of all the qualified expenditures the corporation incurred in the year and any qualified expenditures transferred to the corporation under the agreement in paragraph 127(13)(e). However, amounts the corporation transferred for the year under subsection 127(13)(d) will reduce the pool. Some CCPCs can claim an additional investment tax credit of 15% on qualified expenditures up to their expenditure limit. For taxation years that begin after 1995, a CCPC s expenditure limit for a taxation year will be reduced in accordance with the reduction to the CCPC s business limit under section 125 of the Income Tax Act. As a result, if the CCPC s business limit is zero, its expenditure limit will also be zero. For more information on investment tax credits, see item 77 of the 1995 T2 Corporation Income Tax Guide. You can also get a copy of Form T2038(CORP), Investment Tax Credit Corporations, and the guide called Claiming Scientific Research and Experimental Development Expenditures, from your tax services office or tax centre. 6
7 Tobacco manufacturers surtax The surtax on tobacco manufacturing profits has been extended 3 years to end on February 8, Line 134 Part VI tax payable The February 1997 budget proposes to extend the Part VI surtax on financial institutions (other than life insurers) to include taxation years that begin before November 1, Also, the additional temporary tax on life insurance corporations under Part VI will continue to apply until the end of For more information, see item 88 of the 1995 T2 Corporation Income Tax Guide.
