Release Highlights

T2 Immediate Expensing

TaxCycle T2 now contains the first version to support immediate expensing in corporate tax returns. At the moment, this process still involves some manual steps, as we continue to evolve the worksheet and calculations.

Note that this release of TaxCycle T2 does not yet include the CRA's new version of Schedule 8, released on July 28, 2022. We will add it in a future release. Meanwhile, we have revised TaxCycle’s current Schedule 8 and S8Asset forms to calculate immediate expensing by incorporating the new columns from the Part 2 CCA table. Immediate expensing claims are then included in column 217 of the Part 2 CCA table on Schedule 8. However, these new columns and the new Part 1 table are not transmitted to the CRA when you file the return.

To learn how to claim immediate expensing using the S8Claim and S8Asset worksheets, see the instructions in the T2 Immediate Expensing help topic.
