What is the importance of the "gross revenue" and "total assets" located on the information screen of the T2 under filing. Does this get submitted to CRA in any fashion?


The importance is that these are part of the "Form" prescribed by the "Minsister" as a Return of Income to be filed annually (or on such other occasions as described in The Income Tax Act (The Act)).; as such failure to provide the information could constitute a "failure to file in Prescribed Form", which could lead to penalties for same.

Total Revenues is most often used as one (of two) basis (bases) to allocate taxable income (or M&P income) between provincial/territorial jurisdictions.

Total Assets was (if I recall correctly) previously used in Capital Tax Calculations; in the Ontario calculation I seem to recall an investment allowance that reduced taxable capital by the ratio of allowable investments to total assets multiplied by capital employed.

Also, since total assets and Gross Revenue should appear on Schedules 100 and 125 respectively, and these are basically required forms, then "Yes" they do get submitted.

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.
