In many provinces, the GST has been "harmonized" with the provincial sales tax, to become harmonized sales tax, or HST .Registering for GST is mandatory for all small businesses with gross annual revenue greater than $30,000, unless your product or service is exempt. However, if you voluntarily register, you may be reimbursed for GST that you pay out for business expenses. The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) assigns a Goods and Services Tax (GST) number, or business number, to your business in order to track collection, reports, and remittances of GST or Harmonized Sales Tax (HST).
