What conditions have to be met in order for a corporation to deduct charitable donations? Is it Dollar for Dollar?
Generally speaking, a corporation can claim a deduction for charitable donations made up to 75% of its net income for the year. The donation must be made in the year to a registered charity and the corporation should receive a donation receipt specifying the name of the organization, the date the donation was made, the amount of the donation, and the charity’s registration number. Furthermore, donations made by a corporation should be reported on Schedule 2 of the T2 corporate income tax return.
