If you would like to learn more about these issues, you should attend CRA’s GST/HST Presentation on “Introduction to the For-Profit Sectors.”  You will hear directly from CRA’s GST/HST Headquarters Representative, who has 30+ years of experience working in CRA’s GST/HST programs.

This Presentation is designed as one part of a Series of Presentations. It is designed for individuals who may be business Owners or Directors and for accounting and other practitioners who provide support services to such businesses operating on a For-Profit basis. The information is applicable to sole proprietorships, partnerships and incorporated businesses. You will be introduced to a wide variety of GST/HST issues, each of which can directly affect an entity’s GST/HST accountabilities. We will lay the foundation in this presentation to assist you in preparing for additional learning on other GST/HST topics in subsequent presentations in the series.
