Therefore, the impact of filing a consolidated income tax return on individual members and on the affiliate group as a whole is complex and must be carefully considered before making the choice. The associated group should consider its eligibility, its total tax payable in relation to separate returns, and the impact of the election on future years. Each affiliate must agree to file a consolidated income tax return by filing Form 1122 and returning it with Form 1120, the tax form for U.S. corporations. Thereafter, each new member of the assigned group must participate in the consolidated tax return. Individual affiliates may leave the consolidated group without terminating the group`s status. The decision to file consolidated tax returns can be difficult for the group to revoke. Once made, the election remains binding for all subsequent tax years until the end of the related group. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) may grant permission to cancel the election. Shareholders who choose to receive their dividends by cheque will receive a tax voucher that is attached to each dividend cheque.
The parent company files the consolidated tax return and all subsidiaries must begin tracking the parent company`s tax year. Affiliates are also responsible for providing certain information for the consolidated tax return. They must provide their own tax information, such as taxable income and deductions. Affiliates then also need to determine all transactions between companies. These transactions may include any loan, rental of real estate or goods or services bought or sold. Next, an affiliate must report its net profit or loss without considering all the items that are consolidated to obtain its separate taxable income. A related group that chooses to file a consolidated income tax return can significantly change its combined total tax. For example, a consolidated return ignores sales between affiliates and, therefore, no tax is marked. The carry-forward of taxable profits or losses is carried out with the final sale to an external third party. The income of one affiliate can be used to compensate for the losses of another.
Capital gains and losses may also be offset by affiliates, and foreign tax credits may be shared among affiliates. A consolidated tax return summarizes the tax payable for all computable corporations in a related group. Companies legally eligible to participate in the scope of consolidation must be inclusion companies. An inclusive company, defined by tax law, is any company with the exception of certain insurance companies, foreign companies, tax-exempt companies, regulated investment companies, real estate investment funds and S companies. Once the separate taxable income of all affiliates is added together, the consolidated items are deducted from the member corporations and determine the taxable consolidated income. Consolidated tax revenue (FTV) is sent to shareholders shortly after the payment of the interim dividend at the end of September. A consolidated income tax return is a corporate income tax return of a related group of corporations that choose to disclose their combined tax payable in a single return. The subject matter of the tax return allows companies that operate through many legal subsidiaries to be considered as a single entity. The main consolidated items include capital gains, net losses and certain deductions. B contributions to not-for-profit organizations or net operating losses.

Shareholders should therefore review their bank statements to ensure that payment has been received.

A related group is defined by law as “one or more chains of included companies linked to a joint parent company by shareholding”. The specific tax law defines this as meaning that the parent company holds 80% or more of the voting rights and 80% or more of the value of the shares of at least one of the other reclining companies in the group. The companies in the group must then also hold 80% of their voting rights and the value of their shares in one or more of the other companies.
