What Are The Corporate Tax Preparation Fees?
Corporate tax preparation and filing costs vary depending on the corporation’s revenues, structure, and other related data. A typical corporate income tax filing fee will start at a few hundred dollars, while a complex multinational corporation can go well into the thousands.
A qualified corporate tax accountant ensures that all deadlines are met and regulations are followed to avoid penalties and interest, which are usually significantly higher than the cost of working with a corporate tax services office.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are corporate taxes?
Corporate taxes are a tax on the profits of a corporation paid to the government.
How does corporate tax work in Canada?
In Canada, corporate taxes (T2s) must be filed annually for all registered corporations, both resident and non-resident, including inactive corporations, tax-exempt corporations, and non-profits.
A corporate tax return must be filed no later than six months after the end of each tax year. When filing, you are responsible for meeting deadlines and paying the any tax owed to the government.
How much is corporate tax in Canada?
The basic rate of Part I tax is 38% of your taxable income, 28% after federal tax abatement. After the general tax reduction, the net tax rate is 15%.
For Canadian-controlled private corporations claiming the small business deduction, the net tax rate is 9% effective January 1, 2019. For the latest Canadian corporate tax rates, and lower rates available, visit the Government of Canada.
How can I calculate corporate tax in Canada?
Corporate tax rates can fluctuate annually. Contact our tax consultants for a detailed estimate for your firm.
How long should I keep corporate tax records in Canada?
Canadians should keep corporate tax records for six years after the end of the taxation year to which they relate. For example, for a tax return filed in 2016, you should keep the tax records until December 31st, 2022.
How can I file corporate taxes?
All corporations with an annual gross revenue of more than $1 million must file their T2 electronically, with some exceptions. If a corporation in this category does not file electronically, they are charged a $1000 penalty.
How can I pay corporate tax?
Most corporations are required to pay corporate tax in instalments. Instalment payments are due on the last day of every complete month of your tax year. You can pay directly online on the CRA My Business Account, directly through your banking institution, or by mailing a cheque.
How can I reduce corporate income tax in Canada?
Canadian corporations have two options for reducing corporate income tax: (1) they can do prescribed things that earn them tax credits and/or (2) take advantage of income tax deductions, such as business and travel expenses.
While the federal government keeps a public index of all tax credits and income tax deductions available to corporations, your corporate tax accountant will ensure you are receiving all to which you are entitled. They can also advise as to how to take advantage of these tax credits and deductions in future fiscal years to reduce your corporate income tax as much as possible.
