Pilot Project: Paper Returns Are a Thing of the Past!
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we've come to rely almost exclusively on technology for communication and day-to-day activities. We've also cut down even more on our use of paper and continued to emphasize the use of online services.
All this has led us to a new pilot project launching in March. Some 500 businesses will be invited to choose between four quick and easy options to replace the paper GST/HST and QST return.
My Account for businesses
Using the services in My Account, businesses can:
- get an overview of their tax file
- sign up for deadline alerts
- file consumption tax returns
- pay a balance due
Businesses can use the GST/HST and QST Returns express service to file their return for the current period and pay the balance due.
Businesses can have an accountant or tax expert file their returns online.
Financial institution's online services
Some financial institutions have online services for filing GST/HST and QST returns and making payments.
