Support Services for the Mining and Oil and Gas Extraction Sector

Businesses in this sector support exploration and production activities by supplying products and services such as geophysical and drilling services, as well as supplies, manufacturing, and pipelines. This sector includes the following activities:

  • Oil and Gas Contract Drilling
  • Contract Drilling (not oil and gas)
  • Services for Oil and Gas Extraction
  • Other Support Activities for Mining

The CRA consulted with industry associations to explain the Industry Campaign Approach and to solicit their input to improve campaign correspondence. Starting in April 2015, over 1,500 letters were sent to new businesses and repeat late-filers in this subsector. The letter to new businesses conveyed information on common mistakes and provided useful tips, along with links to the CRA website where further support could be found. The letter to repeat late-filers, who are now up to date, reminded them to file their next tax return on time. That letter provided the filing due date, as well as information on late-filing penalties and interest.

Feedback received from associations in this sector has been very supportive of the Industry Campaign Approach because of the campaign’s focus on consultation and providing information to prevent errors.

Some of the common errors that have been identified on tax returns for businesses operating in this sector, as well as information on how they can be avoided, can be found at the following links:
