Remittance or Refund

At the end of each reporting period, you must remit the GST and QST you have collected. Note that any amount of tax collectible is considered to have been collected when you complete your GST and QST returns.

We must receive your payment no later than the filing deadline for your return (that is, the date shown on the personalized return you received). The date of receipt of a payment is:

  • the date on which we receive it;
  • the date on which a financial institution receives it. 
Note

If your filing deadline falls on a Saturday, Sunday or statutory holiday, the deadline is extended to the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday or statutory holiday.

If you are claiming a refund or have no remittance to make, you must file your return online or by mail.

Payment options

You can remit the GST and QST you have collected in any of the following ways:

Note

If the amount of GST or QST to be remitted is $50,000 or more, you are required to make your payment through a financial institution (online or in person). If you file a single return for both the GST and the QST (form FPZ-500-V), the $50,000 threshold applies to the total GST and QST to be remitted.
