Taxation Services

GST/HST filing is mandatory for a registered Canadian business owner. As per the guidelines issued by the Canadian government, a business must register for Goods and Services Tax (GST) and the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) if their annual income exceeds $30,000. Failure to collect or pay sales tax or file GST/HST returns before the deadline can attract heavy penalties from CRA.

A-one Bookkeeping and Accounting will register your business for GST/HST, guide you on the applicable sales tax rate for your business, and advise you on the due date of paying GST/HST. Our team will make sure that your GST/HST returns are filed on time so that you stay on the good side of CRA.

Disclaimer: We prepare and file GST/HST returns based on the data provided by the clients. We do not perform audit. Although we exercise due care and diligence while preparing GST/HST returns, we cannot provide any assurance relating to the accuracy of the returns since the source data we receive is ultimately provided by the clients. Further, filing accurate returns does not mean that CRA will not select you for audit. CRA selects businesses for audit on a random basis. Though the timely payment of sales tax and filing of GST/HST returns reduces the possibility of a company being selected for audit, we cannot be held responsible for any fines or penalties levied by CRA after being selected for audit.
