Get started now

With the deadline fast approaching, we encourage all charities that haven’t already filed, and are able to do so, to file as soon as possible.

We anticipate higher than usual call volumes as the December 31st deadline approaches. We recommend you contact us early if you have questions!

File online using My Business Account (MyBA)

The easiest way for your charity to file its annual information return is by using My Business Account. You, or an authorized representative, can complete your return over multiple sittings and it can be reviewed by multiple directors. The benefits of using the online version of Form T3010 is that it identifies all the forms and sections that need to be completed as you fill it in. It also reminds you to upload your charity’s financial statements and other required attachments before submitting your return.

Once submitted, your return is instantly processed and the public portion of your financial information is available on the List of charities the next day.

If filing your return on paper, you must remember to complete all the forms, sections and attachments that apply to your charity and send them with your charity’s financial statements. Information on how to file a complete T3010 charity return can be found in the T3010 charity return section of the Charities and giving web pages.

Remember to consult the checklist to ensure you avoid common mistakes when filing your return by mail.
