Points to keep in mind

  • Complete one financial information section—either Section D: Financial Information or Schedule 6: Detailed Financial Information. The list of criteria at the top of Section D helps you choose which one.
  • Questions A3, C3, C4, C7, C9, C10, C11, and Schedule 1–Question 4, are decision points that determine if you need to complete one of the Schedules or an additional form.
  • Guide T4033-1 Completing the Registered Charity Information Return is available online. If you don’t have Internet access, call CRA to request a printed copy. CRA does not include the Guide in the T3010-1 Information Return package.
  • CRA includes a checklist of forms and attachments in Form T3010-1 after Section F: Confidential Data. This checklist helps ensure you complete all parts of the form. Make a copy of the checklist to use while you prepare the form.
  • CRA posts the public sections of Form T3010-1 in the online CRA Charities Listings.
