Shorten Tax Years for Corporations.

Just Trying to figure out how to make my T2 eligible for efile.  I have a new corporate client that started on May 5th 2014 and would like to have their year end Dec. 31.  However Profile isn't allowing me to do so...  
This is my first Corporate return I get to start from the beginning, So I have never had a problem with the Incorporation date and the Tax year date before.

I hope this is clear enough for someone to help me.

Thank you.

To put in a short-year end for the corporation, you will have to override on the Info form for the corporation in the Year-end field. After you have changed the year-end just do a sign-off on that field. (See attached image).


Never post your license key, customer number or any other sensitive information.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
