Consequences of revocation

If your charitable registration is revoked, you:

  • cannot issue official donation receipts
  • do not qualify for exemption from income tax as a registered charity  
  • will have your name and the reason for revocation published in the Canada Gazette and in the Charities Listings
  • must transfer all your remaining assets to an eligible donee or pay revocation tax
  • will not be a charity for GST/HST purposes which could affect:
    • the tax status of your supplies
    • the way you calculate your net tax
    • your ability to claim a rebate for GST/HST

If you use your remaining assets for your charitable activities or transfer them to an eligible donee during the winding-up period, your revocation tax may be zero.
