When is a corporation required to pay tax instalments?

There are two instances in which you do not need to pay tax instalments: 
–  For a new corporation on its first operational year.
–  For a corporation whose balance of corporation tax was below $3,000 for federal and below $3,000 for provincial for the current or previous year.

In all other cases, the payment of tax instalments is mandatory.
