List of Products and Services of Trust Companies

GST/HST Technical Information Bulletin B-057
August 2, 1991

This Technical Information Bulletin does not replace the law found in the Excise Tax Act and its regulations. It is provided for your reference. As it may not completely address your particular operation, you may wish to refer to the Act or appropriate Regulation or contact any Revenue Canada Excise/GST office for additional information.


This document provides a listing of trust company financial products and services and their corresponding exempt or taxable status under the Goods and Services Tax (GST). For purposes of this document, "taxable" means taxable at 7%.

Classifications are based on the wording of Part IX of the Excise Tax Act, as amended by S.C. 1990, c.45 (Bill C-62), Revenue Canada's understanding of the description of the products and services, and the assumption that a separate fee is charged for each listed product or service.

Should legislation or Revenue Canada's interpretation of the description of the products and services be amended, some classifications may change. As well, the classifications may not apply to supplies of financial products or services made to a non-resident.

This list is divided according to the type of service supplied. A number has been provided for each item solely for ease of reference.
