NR6 Form - NR6

Undertaking to File an Income Tax Return by a Non-Resident Receiving Rent from Real Property.

This form is a joint election between the foreign owner and the local agent or manger that you will file a section 216 Canadian tax return by June 30th, of the following year.

Although filing a section 216 Return is not mandatory, it is usually beneficial, as the NR6 along with the Section 216 filing, will reduce the tax implication from 25% of gross rental income to 25% of net rental income.

Allowable deductions include property taxes, repairs and maintenance, management and accounting fees, and advertising expenses. NR6 undertaking must be filed prior to receiving the first rental payment and must be filed annually.

If you are interested in investing in Downtown Vancouver Realty, it is suggested to utilize the nr6 form.⁄E⁄pbg⁄tf⁄nr6⁄nr6-06e.pdf
