Canadian Tax Adviser, January 12, 2016. As a reminder, if you are an employer who offers registered pension plans to your employees, you may be required to remit GST/HST and QST amounts by January 31, 2016 based on complex GST/HST and QST pension plans related rules. As such, employers with a December 31 year-end are required to calculate these tax amounts based on information as of December 31, 2015 and must remit these amounts in their December GST/HST and QST returns generally due no later than January 31, 2016.
See TaxNewsFlash-Canada 2015-36 “Employers and Pension Plans — Prepare Now for GST/HST and QST December 31 Deadline” for more details.
Employers and pension entities should carefully review how they are affected by these complex rules since potential changes in their organizational structures could affect their 2015 calculations.
