Aargh Software Trust2File software automates bare trust T3 filing and compliance for Canadian property management firms.

Compliance Deadline: By law, bare trust T3-RET filings are mandatory annually for Bare Trusts starting in 2023. With a 90-day filing requirement, most filings should be completed by April 2, 2024. Recognizing that many people may not be fully prepared, CRA has waived the filing deadline for this first year, especially for proactive property managers who are in the process of completion.

This has created a complex filing problem for property managers across Canada.

 Penalties: Failure to comply can be costly:

  • Daily Penalty: $25 per day, with a minimum penalty of $100 and a maximum of $2,500.
  • If the trust fails to file—knowingly or due to gross negligence— the penalty will be the greater of $2,500 or 5% of the maximum value of property held during the year.
