When Are Corporate and Personal Taxes Due in Canada in 2021?

2021 Tax Due Dates for Canadians

The new year has shown up, and as constant bookkeepers, we’re as of now making arrangements for 2021. To kick things off, we’ll go through the main assessment cutoff times that Canadian citizens will confront this year. We will take a gander at:

Individual Tax Deadlines in 2021

Corporate Tax Deadlines in 2021, and

GST/HST Deadlines in 2021

Individual Tax Deadlines 2021

Independently employed

Your assessment form is expected on June 15, 2021, regardless of whether you or your companion got business pay in 2021.

Assessments owing are as yet due on April 30, 2021, regardless of whether the genuine recording of the return isn’t expected until June.


On the off chance that neither you nor your mate procures independent work pay, your assessment form and any owing duties are expected on April 30, 2021. For citizens, this is the most well-known circumstance.


In case you are needed to pay charge portions in 2021, they are expected:

Walk fifteenth

June fifteenth

September fifteenth

December fifteenth


You have until Monday, March 1, 2021, to add to your RRSP and have it diminish your 2020 expense owing.

Corporate Tax Deadlines

Corporate duty cutoff times change from individual expense cutoff times in a couple of ways. Organizations might have year-closes other than December 31st for charge purposes. We can be that as it may, handily decide when your corporate-government forms and owed sums are expected.


Corporate assessment forms are expected a half year after the finish of the monetary year. We should check out several models:

At the point when the partnership’s assessment year-end is on the last day of a month, the return is expected by the last day of the sixth month after the year-end. For instance, a December, long-term end would have a June 30, 2021, due date.

At the point when the last day of the duty year isn’t the last day of a month, the return is expected that very day of the sixth month after the year-end. For instance, a September, long-term end would have a March, long-term end.


The cutoff times for paying extraordinary equilibriums are set sooner than the cutoff times for documenting expense forms. The abbreviated form is that duties owing are expected 2 months after the year-end.

Notwithstanding, there is an exemption that is exceptionally normal. Corporate expenses are expected 3 months after the year-end if the accompanying models apply:

The organization is a Canadian Controlled Private Corporation.

The organization guaranteed the independent company allowance for the current or earlier year.

The organization and all related partnerships (if relevant) had available pay under $500,000 in the earlier year.

Since the above exception is so normal, there’s a reasonable possibility your corporate duties will be expected three months after the year’s end. Since it’s somewhat trickier, we suggest asking your bookkeeper or sending us a message to ensure you have the right date.

GST/HST Deadlines

There are a couple of normal situations for GST/HST return due dates.

Month to month FILERS

At the point when GST returns are documented consistently, the return and any remarkable sums are expected one month after the announcing time frame closes. A recording time of June 1-30, for instance, implies the return is expected on July 31st.


When recording quarterly GST returns, the return and any extraordinary sums are expected one month after the announcing time frame closes. For instance, a recording time of July 1 to September 30 methods the return is expected on October 31st.


At the point when a business that is anything but individual documents a yearly GST return, the return and any owed totals are expected three months after the revealing time frame closes. For instance, if the recording time frame is July 1, 2020, to June 30, 2021, the return is expected on September 30, 2021.


People who document GST consistently and have December 31, 2020, as their financial and duty year-end have marginally various cutoff times. They relate to the expense cutoff times for independently employed individuals. Coming up next are the cutoff times for 2021:

GST owing is expected April 30, 2021

Documenting of the GST returns is expected June 15, 2021
