All persons or partnerships (including partners involved in a joint venture) must file a return for each fiscal year, regardless of the type of activity undertaken in the course of the mineral development process.
The return and its schedules allow the operator to estimate the amount of duties payable or, as the case may be, the credit on duties refundable for losses. It must be filed with the Department within six months from the end of the operator’s fiscal year by mail or by fax.
The operator must forward the following documents to the Department in support of his return:
the financial statements for the fiscal year concerned;
all relevant detailed analyses justifying the amounts claimed in regard to:
the depreciation allowance;
the exploration allowance;
the allowance for mineral deposit evaluation and mine development before production;
the allowance for mineral deposit evaluation and mine development after production;
the processing allowance;
the additional allowance for a mine located in Northern Québec.
