All Canadian businesses must file a T2 return for each tax year, even if they have no tax to pay. This includes not-for-profit organizations, as well as tax-exempt and inactive corporations.

Companies have been able to file their taxes directly online for many years. Read on to find out how to file your corporate tax return online!

Why is it important to do your business accounting online in Quebec?

Businesses must file their tax returns six months after the end of the fiscal year in order to pay their taxes.

In some cases, businesses must file additional tax returns and pay other provincial and federal taxes, such as GST and QST, as well as HST and payroll deductions. They are also required to make monthly, quarterly or annual instalments.

If you have ever filed your business tax return late, the federal or provincial government imposes penalties for late payment. Doing your taxes online can help avoid this kind of mishap.

Solutions for filing your business taxes online

There are several ways for businesses to do their taxes online! Here are a few examples.

Accounting software

With today's new technologies, most accounting software companies have moved to the cloud. This means that you no longer need to buy and download software on your computer. Simply sign up for a cloud accounting software and you're all set! You will be able to access all your data from anywhere on the planet from any computer with Internet access.

Furthermore, many professional tax accounting firms in Quebec have adopted the same technological approach and now offer their bookkeeping services remotely via cloud-based software. There are many advantages to this: everyone works on the same version and business owners always have access to their data in real time. Naturally, what business owners appreciate most is the ability to invoice their clients no matter where they are located.

Small business tax returns

As you can see, it is now possible to do your small business accounting in Quebec. But what about tax returns for Quebec businesses?

There are many different tax solutions available for business owners and accountants. In most cases, however, you are licensed to use them, which means that you have to do everything yourself without the help of tax specialists to verify your returns and ensure the accuracy of your data.

You can find more information about the online business tax return on the government website.
