Are you involved in the digital economy?

This page contains examples of activities in the digital economy and the related tax obligations.

Important

These examples involve individuals who are not performing services as employees of a business or through a corporation.

End of note

Examples

Some mornings, every evening or weekends only, you deliver meals and groceries by car or bike for money. 

You probably have tax obligations, since amounts received for business activities conducted through a digital platform may be considered income.

You may also be considered self-employed.  

End of note

Your obligations

Generally speaking, you have to report your income from the digital economy.

If you are considered self-employed, you must include your business income in your income tax return.

You must also check whether you are required to register for the GST and QST.

For more on your obligations, click Self-Employed Persons or refer to the following:

  • Business and Professional Income (IN-155-V)
  • Business or Professional Income and Expenses (TP-80-V)
