In Canada, all small businesses are required to register, file, and pay HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) on a predetermined schedule to the CRA. Any delays or non-compliance in payments can incur hefty penalties — which can have a significant impact on your business.

At Clearwater, we assist our clients with the process of collecting and submitting HST, as well as correspondence with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). From compiling information, to accurately preparing HST returns, to overseeing your HST related costs, our team will provide you with peace of mind knowing that you are fulfilling your responsibilities as a small business owner.
