Liaison Officers from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) visit small business owners to provide general information and to help them better understand their tax obligations. Learn how your business can benefit from this service.
On July 1, 2010, the existing provincial sales tax (PST) and the federal goods and services tax (GST) was replaced with the federally administered Harmonized Sales Tax (HST). The HST rate is 13% (8% going to the province and 5% to the federal government).
RST continues to apply to taxable insurance premiums and private sales of specified vehicles from a person who is not a GST/HST registrant.
RST related activities such as audits, refunds and appeals, etc., that apply to periods prior to July 1, 2010 continue during our wind-down period.
