Have you ever wondered if you had missed claiming all eligible amounts?

If you would like to learn more about these issues, you should attend CRA’s GST/HST Presentation. You will hear directly from CRA’s GST/HST Headquarters employee who has 30+ years of experience in GST/HST Programs. The Presentation will identify and discuss how the PSB Rebate applies to both entities. It will review entitlement, similarities and differences by entity type, and the rules to help you better manage your organization’s PSB Rebate.

This Presentation is designed for both Charities and NPOs. It is intended for all individuals who may be involved with the entity’s GST/HST.

You will hear about maximizing your PSB Rebates and how to avoid some of the common mistakes which can result in future non-compliance.
