Required Supporting Documents
Prior to filing your first rebate application, see Entitlement to the Rebate to ensure you are entitled to a rebate of the GST/HST, QST, or other taxes and duties prescribed by Québec legislation.
We will assign an identification number to you the first time we process an application for a consumption tax rebate. If you are not using the pre-addressed form, you must include your identification number on all subsequent applications.
You must include photocopies of invoices and supporting documents for all your purchases (note that the photocopies will not be returned to you). The following information must be provided:
- the date of the invoice
- the supplier's name
- a description of the goods and services on which taxes and duties were paid
- the amount of the taxes and duties paid, if they are listed separately on the invoice, or a note stating that taxes and duties are included in the price
- § the purchaser's name, if the value of the goods and services acquired exceeds $500 (before taxes and duties).
You must keep adequate records, including original invoices, on file for six years after the end of the year to which they pertain.
Rebate applications are generally processed within 8 to 10 weeks.
At the time of processing, we may ask you to provide additional documents, such as proof of payment of taxes or duties.
