GST/HST Update – Payment & Filing Deadlines
The CRA has now released additional details on GST/HST relief for businesses. While the GST/HST remittances and payments due on or after March 27, 2020 and before June 2020 may now be deferred to the end of June 2020, the CRA has advised that businesses should continue to file the related GST/HST returns if they are able to do so. However, the CRA will not assess penalties for the late-filing if the GST/HST returns due during that period are filed by June 30, 2020.
Annual filers will also be able to defer until June 30, 2020, the GST/HST instalments due on or after March 27, 2020 and before June 2020.
Taxpayers who file their GST/HST returns and rebates in paper format may not receive their refunds or rebates until normal CRA operations resume. Some returns and rebates filed electronically may be processed automatically unless such filings become subject to additional review.
Businesses and other taxpayers should ensure that they continue to file all GST/HST rebate applications and claim credits within the required due dates.
