Use this form to determine the continuity and use of available losses; to determine a current-year non-capital loss, farm loss, restricted farm loss, or limited
partnership loss; to determine the amount of restricted farm loss and limited partnership loss that can be applied in a year; and to ask for a loss carryback
to previous years.
A corporation can choose whether or not to deduct an available loss from income in a tax year. The corporation can deduct losses in any order. However,
for each type of loss, deduct the oldest loss first.
According to subsection 111(4) of the Income Tax Act, when control has been acquired, no amount of capital loss incurred for a tax year ending before that
time is deductible in computing taxable income in a tax year ending after that time. Also, no amount of capital loss incurred in a tax year ending after that
time is deductible in computing taxable income of a tax year ending before that time.
When control has been acquired, subsection 111(5) provides for similar treatment of non-capital and farm losses, except as listed in
paragraphs 111(5)(a) and (b).
For information on these losses, see the T2 Corporation – Income Tax Guide.
File one completed copy of this schedule with the T2 return, or send the schedule by itself to the tax centre where the return is filed.
