When do you not have to file a T5008 information return?

You do not need to file a T5008 slip and information return for:


A client of a trader or dealer in securities owns an option to buy publicly traded shares in XYZ Corporation. If the trader or dealer buys the option from the client or sells the option to a third party for the client, the trader has to prepare a T5008 information return to reflect the transaction. However, if the client exercises the option and acquires the shares of XYZ Corporation, or if the option is allowed to expire, the trader does not have to file a T5008 information return.
