If you are completing form T2125, enter at line 8000 your adjusted gross sales from amount 7 in Part 3A.
For a professional activity, enter your adjusted professional fees from amount 15 in Part 3B.
Line 8290 – Reserves deducted last year

Line 8230 – Other income
On line 8230, enter the total income you received from other sources. Some examples of other income are:
- a recovered amount you wrote off as a bad debt in a previous year
- the value of prizes or vacation trips awarded to you because of your business or professional activities
- payments you received for land you leased for petroleum or natural gas exploration. For more information, go to Interpretation Bulletin IT-200, Surface rentals and farming operations.
- grants, subsidies, incentives, or assistance you get from a government, government agency, or non-government agency. Input tax credits are considered government assistance. Include the amount you claimed on line 108 of your GST/HST return only if you cannot apply the rebate, grant, or assistance you received to reduce a particular expense or an asset's capital cost. For more information, go to Grants, subsidies, and rebates.
If you use the quick method to calculate your GST/HST remittances, report the 1% credit (maximum $300) that you claimed on line 108 of your GST/HST return (or on line 107 if you filed on paper). For more information, go to Interpretation Bulletin IT-273R2, Government Assistance – General Comments.
Enter on line 9974 in Part 5, the amount of GST/HST rebate for partners you received in the year that relates to eligible capital expenses other than CCA. For more information, go to Line 9974 - GST/HST rebate for partners received in the year.
Do not include in income any other rebate, grant, or assistance you receive. Subtract that amount from the proper expense or the cost of capital property it relates to. If the rebate, grant, or assistance is for a depreciable asset, subtract the amount you received from the asset's capital cost. This will affect the amount of CCA you can claim for that asset. If the asset qualifies for the investment tax credit, this reduction to the capital cost will also affect your claim for the investment tax credit. For more information, go to form T2038(IND), Investment Tax Credit (Individuals).
The amount at line 8299 is your gross business or professional income. This amount is your adjusted gross sales or adjusted professional fees at line 8000, plus any reserves deducted last year at line 8290, plus any other income at line 8230.
Enter the amount at line 8299 on your form. If it is business income, enter this amount on your tax return on line 162. If it is professional income, enter this amount on your tax return on line 164.
Keep track of how much of your business income was commission income. Enter your gross commission income on line 166 of your income tax return.
Generally, you have to register for the GST/HST if you provide taxable supplies in Canada and your total revenues from worldwide taxable supplies (before expenses) from all your businesses and those of your associates are more than $30,000 over the last four consecutive calendar quarters or in any single calendar quarter.
