Tax Development May 14, 2010

Ontario has issued Tax Tip #7 to help small businesses understand if they are eligible for a small business transition support payment, referred to as the “Small Business Transition Credit” and how this credit will be delivered. 

Tax Tip #8 has been issued to assist businesses as they review and modify their accounting and point-of-sale systems in preparation for the implementation of the HST, which will become effective July 1, 2010.  

Eligible businesses in Ontario will qualify for a transition support payment of up to $1,000.  Ontario will automatically send payments to all eligible businesses, which are expected to commence in late fall of 2010, using information obtained from the Canada Revenue Agency.
