When changing from a sole proprietorship to a corporation, you must file form T2057. Otherwise, capital gains tax will apply on the assets transferred by you (i.e. sole proprietor) to your newly created corporation.
Also, a penalty is levied by the Canada Revenue Agency for filing form T2057 late. The penalty is calculated as $100 per month for each month that the form is past due.
