If you bill more than $30,000 per annum you are required to register for GST/HST.
Start collecting GST/HST
In the month following the quarter when a business exceeds $30,000 in sales, it must start collecting GST/HST.
Unfiled GST/HST returns
If you or your small Canadian business has unfiled GST or unfiled HST returns then provided that CRA has not contacted you about the unfiled returns you should be eligible for the Voluntary Disclosure Program and not be subject to prosecution or penalties. One of our professional Canadian tax lawyers at our Toronto tax law firm can advise you if you qualify to be a part of the Voluntary Disclosure Program.
If you have filed your GST/HST returns but have not paid the taxes owing our top Ontario tax lawyers can assist you in making payment arrangements with CRA before CRA seizes your accounts receivable or bank accounts.
