GST/HST for Municipalities
Do you know if you are charging and collecting the correct amount of GST/HST?
Do you know if you are missing any eligible items on your rebate applications?
Would you like to learn how to avoid the most common GST/HST errors?

If you are curious about any of these question, you should attend CRA’s GST/HST Outreach presentation. You will hear directly from CRA’s GST/HST Headquarters representative who has 30+ years experience in GST/HST programs. The presentation will focus on important GST/HST obligations and entitlements. You will learn about rebates, input tax credits and what things are subject to GST/HST. We will review the most important GST/HST rules, legislation and relationships to help you manage your GST/HST and avoid costly errors.

This presentation is intended for any municipalities – large and not-so-large - including designated and determined municipalities. It is designed for managers, staff and any other individuals who may be involved in the municipality’s GST/HST. Even if you think that your municipality is “too small” or if you have already been reviewed, you should still attend. You will learn about things that will help you and your team as you manage your GST/HST obligations and responsibilities. And if you would just like a refresher, or to hear directly from CRA that you are “doing things right”, this presentation is for you.
