Sharing Economy

In the sharing economy, individuals share or trade goods, services or knowledge in exchange for payment or for no payment at all. 

The many sharing or e-commerce platforms available have increased the number of transactions between individuals, to such an extent that the term “platform economy” is often used to encompass all related economic spinoffs.

Revenu Québec's actions

To meet the increasing number of requests for information regarding transactions between individuals, we have added two sections to our website that deal with two key sectors of the sharing economy:

Read these sections to easily understand your rights and obligations.

Correcting an oversight

If you earned income online through social media, digital platforms or websites but did not report it, we encourage you to make the necessary corrections to avoid paying penalties and interest and to take advantage of relief measures.

See the pages below to find out how to make changes to a return for a previous year or put your tax file in order (for example, by correcting a GST or QST return)

It pays to report your income!

Reporting your income doesn't necessarily mean you'll have to pay income tax. There are benefits, too:

  • tax credits such as the work premium and solidarity tax credit
  • eligibility for parental benefits
  • increasing your RRSP contributions
  • a retirement pension from Retraite Québec based on all your income
  • a better financial profile for financial institutions

Report your income. It's fair for all.

Registers and supporting documents

If you carry on a business in Québec, you are required to keep registers. They can help us confirm your income and expenses and determine the amount you owe us or we owe you.

Your records and supporting documents (including electronic records) must generally be kept for at least six years after the end of the last taxation year they cover.

For more information, click Keeping Your Registers and Supporting Documents.
