Hello fellow Canadians!

I'm trying to figure out reporting domain revenue for income tax purposes in Canada.

I understand that advice here doesn't replace a lawyer or an accountant, but since domaining isn't clear to those outside of our group I thought I'd ask here first.

This would be added to my personal tax as I haven't set up a separate business yet.

So I have two scenarios I'm dealing with this year:

1) A straight up sale (e.g. Bought for $100, sold for $500 = $400 in profit.)
I figure this is reported as a capital gain.

2) A domain lease to own (e.g. Bought for $100, sold for $200 with $50/yr = -$50)
I figured this is a capital loss of $50.

Therefore a total capital gain of this year of $400 - $50 = $350

I'm also confused what I would do for next year if I reported it like this?

Am I able to carry over my $50 loss over from this year to next year (and have a net gain of $0) for 2016.

Does this make sense or am I missing something?

Thanks everyone!

don't know about Canada tax laws, but for USA the amounts are so low, that i wouldn't bother to report it, unless the buyer sent info to gov.

imo....

Like Biggie said if the buyer did not file any paper with the government then it is consider cash business.
I would not be worry for anything under a million dollar.
