Filing by mail
To file your GST/HST and QST returns by mail, complete form FPZ-500-V, GST/HST–QST Return, which we sent you.
This form has a detachable remittance slip, which allows you, if applicable, to make your combined GST/HST–QST remittance in a single payment. Click Remittance or Refund for more information.
If you do not receive a personalized return at least 15 working days before the filing deadline, or if you lost the one that was sent to you, contact our client services.
Certain businesses and organizations may apply to have their branches or divisions file separate GST and QST returns. To do so, they must use form FP-2010-V, Application or Revocation of Application to File Separate Returns or Rebate Applications.
Viewing a return
Use the View GST/HST and QST Returns Filed Online service if you need information about returns you filed online.
If you need information about all the returns you filed (online and on paper), use the View Payments online service. For statements of account, use the View a Statement of Account service.
These services are all available in My Account for businesses.
