According to the Canadian Revenue Agency (“CRA”), nonresidents of Canada must remit 25% of any rent received as withholding tax by the 15th day of the month following the month during which the rental payment was paid or credited. It is important to know that non-residence tax status is not determined based on citizenship rather on various criteria as outlined in the questionnaire by CRA (look under Useful Forms). For example, Canadian citizens that traveled abroad for work, live or study purposes can be deeded as non-resident for tax purposes. We would be able to assist you in determining your taxation status.

In order to improve our clients’ cash flow we can file form NR6 for our nonresident clients to minimize their withholding taxes. NR6 allows us to withhold 25% of the net estimate income for the nonresident. However, by filing the NR6 form DASH must file the tax return for the client for the same calendar year (January to December).

By April 30th of the following calendar year our office will file nonresident tax returns in order to find whether the client needs to pay tax or should receive a tax refund.

Non residents owner will need to remember than upon the sale of their property there would be 25% of the sold price. The Seller will have to make sure he has filed for clearance certificate to avoid penalties and to be able and meet large portion of the profits soon. Our accounting team will assist you with filing for the clearance certificate and can check if you are entitled for further tax credit for your paid capital gains.

Reality is the each Landlord needs his/her own property insurance to make sure they are properly covered and insured.

Prior to occupancy of a newly built condominium in Ontario, Tarion, the Ontario New Home Warranty Program, requires home owners to inspect the Condominium unit for deficiencies and to ensure construction was completed as per your agreement of purchase and sale.

You could be entitled to a HST Rebate of up to $30,000 if you use your property for rental purposes.

Many Condo owners are unaware they qualify for the rebate even if the unit is not their primary residence.  The Rebate is available If you purchase a newly developed condominium property from a builder and you paid the HST on the purchase of a newly constructed or substantially renovated residential complex or an interest in the complex. The next requirement is that you lease the complex or units in the complex to another person for residential use by an individual. The rebate is not for the full HST paid but only for a portion of the HST paid.

The rebate must be filed within two years after the end of the month in which tax first becomes payable on your purchase.

Property owners have to file Capital Gains return to report the sale of property regardless if the sale resulted in gain or loss. The return should be filed following the end of the calendar year and allows Seller to account for the selling costs.

When a nonresident sells the property his solicitor is required to withhold 25% of the selling price. The solicitor should file the request for “clearance certificate” to Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) which might take few months to receive. Once the “clearance certificate” is accepted the solicitor releases the withholding funds less 25% of the gross profit.

For example:

Mrs. Y purchased property in 2005 for $45,000.00 and had closing costs of $5,000.00.

Mrs. Y sold her property in 2011 for $100,000.00 and had additional selling expenses of $10,000.00

Upon sale $25,000.00 are held by the seller’s solicitor ($100,000 X 25%)
Upon receipt of the “clearance certificate” the following is calculated:
Amount to be paid to CRA by the solicitor ($100,000.00-$50,000.00) X 25% = $12,500.00
Solicitor to Credit Seller = $25,000.00-$12,500.00= $12,500.00
Capital Gain return is filed to account for the selling expenses and possibly receive additional refund from CRA.
