When filling out the T2125 for business income, do I include freight in charges under the amount for purchases in the cost of goods solds section, or do I put it under expenses on line 9275?

No need to reply, I am fairly certain that freight in does not fall under an expense for a business, but is included in purchases, thanks!

It depends if the freight relates to inventory. The cost of goods sold section is for calculatin of costs/expenses that relate to Inventory costs as they are not expenses until they are sold.

If your business does not have inventory, from lets the manufacture or sale of products, they this section does not apply to your expenses at all and should not be used.

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.
