Return of Securities Transactions (T5008)
Notice to reader
The information in Guide T4091, T5008 Guide - Return of Securities Transactions 2016 replaces the information in Guide RC4268, The Handbook on Securities Transactions - A Summary of Reporting Requirements Under the Income Tax Regulations, which has been cancelled on 2017-01-31.
In these pages, the term "filer" refers to the person (that is, an individual or organization) that, under the Income Tax Act, must prepare and file a T5008 information return. A filer is different from a service bureau or anyone else who may be filing the return for a filer.
Filers must use their account number instead of their Business Number.
If you file more than 50 information returns (slips), you must file your information return by Internet File Transfer.
