Businesses – Tax information newsletter Issue 2015-01

April 16, 2015

Register a business the easy way!

Do you need a business number? Or are you a representative who often registers multiple businesses at once? As of April 13, 2015, you can use the Canada Revenue Agency’s (CRA) upgraded Business Registration Online service. It’s your one-stop shop to register for a business number and related accounts (corporation income tax, GST/HST, payroll, and import-export).

Need to pay for your business taxes?

You can help your bottom line by using the CRA’s new pre-authorized debit service. It’s a low cost payment option for businesses that’s available no matter which financial institution you deal with or the size of your payments.

No offset of GST/HST and QST amounts when filing on a consolidated basis

An investment plan that is a SLFI cannot offset GST/HST and QST amounts when they file on a consolidated basis.

Remembering business-related tax deadlines just got a lot easier with the CRA’s Business Tax Reminders mobile app

It's easier than ever for small and medium-sized businesses to remember their tax deadlines, thanks to the CRA’s new Business Tax Reminders mobile app, available now free of charge on Apple iOS, Google Android, and Blackberry mobile platforms.
