About this event
The pandemic has put immense financial pressure on many family support centres at a time when their programs and services are needed the most. To help ensure centres are accessing GST/HST rebates they may be eligible for, Families Canada and the CRA are hosting a presentation on GST/HST for charities. We strongly encourage family support centres to attend this presentation. Boosting your GST/HST knowledge can help keep funds in community-level organizations and keep essential supports available to families.
In this presentation you will learn about GST/HST rules for charities, how to claim all eligible GST/HST amounts, how to avoid common errors and more! You will hear directly from CRA’s GST/HST Headquarters representative who has 30+ years’ experience in GST/HST programs. The presentation will focus on important GST/HST obligations and entitlements. You will learn about rebates, input tax credits and other important GST/HST topics. We will review the most important GST/HST rules and legislation to help you manage your GST/HST and maximize recoveries. You will learn about ways to claim back some, or maybe even all, of the GST/HST your entity pays out.
