T2125 Form - husband and wife have separate businesses. Continue to get Efile Errors.

I have entered a T2125 #1 for husband with 100% ownership and zero % partnership for spouse and entered a T2125 #2 for wife with 100 % ownership and zero % partnership for spouse.

ProFile keeps linking wife to husbands business and I am getting an enormous amount of Efile errors.  How do I remove wife from husbands business???

Answer

I've been scratching my head looking for an answer for you before recommending you call Intuit Canada (there line is really busy now). I think you'll be fine doing what you said in your comment. Usually the problem might be connected with income sharing by inputting the spouse as a partner, because when you do this the first statement of business activities will be called T2125#1 and the partner/spouse created will be identical but numbered T2125#2 on the spouse's side for their share of the income. So if the spouse had an additional statement of business activities it would be number T2125#3 and this could create a problem...

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.
