Issuing Dividends for a Corporation and the T5

I'm submitting my T2 and I'm not sure where my T5 for corporate dividends should be recorded.   How do I show this?  Thanks.

Answer

T5's and the summary are submitted to CRA separately like a T4 (and summary).  You will need to register an "Account" with CRA (the business number will be like the GST/HST number and the corporate number but the RT or RC will be replaced by two other letters (can't recall what they are off the top of my head.

Call CRA, they will help you.  

PS for 2012 they were to be filed by Feb 28, 2013 (I think).  They are typically filed about the same time as T4's.

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.
