Posted under News | What's New from the Charities Directorate of CRA | Canadian Charity Law | Ethics and Canadian Charities
The Charities Directorate has released a new T3010 (13) Registered Charity Information Return for Canadian registered charities with fiscal year ends after January 1, 2013. The changes on the T3010 (13) are basically more questions about the political activities of Canadian charities as a result of the 2012 Federal Budget. Canadian charities will need to answer more questions on political activities in Section C5; and fill out a new Schedule 7, Political Activities. If your fiscal year end is in 2012 then use the old T3010-1 - otherwise, for those with fiscal year ends after January 1, 2013 use the new T3010 (13). As pointed out to me by Steven Ayer of Common Good Strategies there are also an additional question on receipted foreign funds, more country codes and other small changes.
