New Requirements for Paying Consumption Taxes and Filing Consumption Tax Returns Electronically
As of January 1, 2024, payments of $10,000 or more must be made to us electronically (previously, the limit was $50,000 or more). An electronic payment is a payment made through the online services of a financial institution or by any electronic means specified by the Minister. Note that we may impose a penalty on anyone who fails to make a payment electronically as required.
In addition, as of January 1, 2024, all GST/HST and QST registrants (except charities) will be required to file their consumption tax returns electronically, through either a financial institution or our website. Note that we may impose a penalty on anyone who fails to file electronically as required.
