I have a new client and I need to know how to include the previous year's data (only a paper copy is available) when I create a new T2 client file for the current year?


Hello Garfield,

The fastest way is to T2 AFR (auto fill), this should populate most of the information from a prior year return. To learn more on this feature, please visit https://profile-en.community.intuit.ca/articles/1734563-import-client-data-for-t2-returns-directly-f...

Not everything gets imported so ensure to review the import and amounts that are remaining. 

Previous data can also be filled manually by going to the respective forms like s1,s100,s125 and filling out prior year column. If there are prior non capital losses, ensure to also fill them out on S4supp. Hope that helps in getting you started.

Have a great weekend!

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.
