If you are a driver related to a transportation system operator under agreement, such as Uber or Eva, you operate a taxi business and you carry on no other commercial activities, you must meet the following requirements respecting the GST and QST.

GST and QST registration

You must be registered for the GST and QST before making your first trip.

Use our Register for the GST/HST and QST – Drivers for a Transportation System Operator Under Agreement online service to quickly register for the taxes in a few easy steps.

Conditions for using the GST/HST and QST registration service

To use the Register for the GST/HST and QST – Drivers for a Transportation System Operator Under Agreement online service, you must meet the conditions below.  

Use the Quick Method of Accounting

You must make an election to use the Quick Method of Accounting to calculate your net tax.

The Quick Method of Accounting simplifies the way you calculate the taxes to be remitted to us. Your transportation system operator (Uber or Eva, for example) collects the GST/HST and QST on your fares and remits to us the taxes calculated at the rates established in the agreements (2.73% for the GST and 6.16% for the QST).

You cannot claim input tax credits (ITCs) and input tax refunds (ITRs) for most of your business operating expenses, such as fuel and telephone services, because the rates used in this method take these things into account. However, you will be able to claim ITCs and ITRs respecting certain capital purchases (such as a smartphone or automobile you purchased and use mainly for commercial activities).

For more information, see The Quick Method of Accounting for Calculating GST and QST Remittances.

Remitting the GST and QST

Under the agreements with us, transportation system operators (such as Uber or Eva) must collect the GST and QST on services you provide through their platform and remit the taxes on your behalf at the rates established in the agreements.

However, in some situations, you may have to remit additional amounts directly to us when filing your tax return.
