Does anyone else have CRA coming back saying that the e-filed balance sheet (S 100) is out of balance?

On the last two T2 returns that I e-filed CRA has come back saying that the baance sheet is out of balance and the accumulated amortization is greater than the total tangible capital assets. In actual fact there is nothing wrong with the S100 that I e-filed. Is there a problem during the e-filing process?

Answer

I have never had a response from CRA on this, as if there is a difference, I correct it when prompted by the audit warning.  These are normally small rounding differences involving a few dollars - should not be a CRA concern, but if they have a low tolerance, it is easy to avoid the problem by changing on of the schedule 100 amounts.

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.
