If the PSB is not registered for the GST and the QST (and is not required to be), it must file one application for the first six months of its fiscal year and another for the last six months. The application must be filed within four years after the last day of the claim period.
If the PSB is registered for the GST and the QST (or is required to be), the claim period corresponds to the GST and QST reporting period (monthly, quarterly or annually). In general, PSBs apply for the rebate when they file their return for the reporting period in which they incurred the expenses. However, they have four years to apply for their rebate.
If the PSB has several branches or divisions, it can apply for authorization to have them file separate rebate applications. Each branch or division must be separately identified by its location or the nature of its activities, and must keep separate records, books of account and accounting systems. To apply for authorization, you must complete form FP-2010-V, Application or Revocation of Application to File Separate Returns or Rebate Applications.
