Penalties that are applicable for failure to file Form T1135 by the reporting deadline:

 

- Failing to file a return: $25 per day for up to 100 days (minimum $100 and maximum $2,500)

- Failure to file done knowingly or under circumstances amounting to gross negligence: $500 per month for up to 24 months (maximum $12,000)
