In March the Charities Directorate extended the T3010 filing deadline to December 31, 2020 for charities with returns due between March 18 and December 31. That deadline is quickly approaching! CRA uses the T3010 Registered Charity Information Return to verify compliance and to provide information to the public.
If you haven’t already filed, this is your friendly reminder to get your information ready. CRA encourages charities to file online through My Business Account (MyBA). A newly released MyBA Quick Reference Guide can help you with your charity’s online registration and accessing your charity’s account. If you want, you can still file on paper – the postmarked date indicated on the envelope is used as the received date.
CCCC members can access our CRA-approved online fillable T3010 form. It has commentary and cross-checks to help you complete your T3010. You’ll need to know your charity’s basic information, Director/Trustee names and contact information, your charity’s activities, and financial information.
