how do I allocate home daycare expenses on the Profile T2125? It isn't enough just to insert the sq ft of the home and areas used for daycare.

I have the total home expenses; the area used for the daycare, the # of hrs provided during the day and the # of days a week the daycare is operating.  Using the formula to determine what can be claimed is easy but how to I put it on a T2125 or is there another form I should be using?

Thank you!


I would use the percentage in the sq ft area.  For example use 100 as the total area of the home and 37 (or whatever number is appropriate) as the business use.  Then all of the home expenses would carry through with that percentage.

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.
