T1134 Filing Deadline Change

On October 25, 2018, the Department of Finance released a Notice of Ways and Means Motion that included changes to the filing deadline for filing Form T1134. Form T1134, an information return for taxpayer’s with investments in non-resident corporations (known as foreign affiliates). Historically, a taxpayer had up to 15 months after its year-end to file Form T1134. The new deadlines are now 12 months after a taxpayer’s year-end for taxation years beginning after 2019, and to 10 months for taxation years beginning after 2020.

Originally, the Department of Finance proposed making it a 6 month deadline to match up with a Canadian-controlled private corporation’s T2 filing deadline so it’s not as bad as it could’ve been.
