Manitoba Update on RST Filing and Remittance Through Participating Financial Institutions and Registration

Tax Development Jun 22, 2016

Manitoba has updated RST Information Bulletins 004, “Information for Vendors”, and 005, “Information for Contractors”, to advise clients that make RST remittances and file RST returns through their financial institutions to contact the institution to determine if they participate in the tax-filing program since many financial institutions are looking to change to a paperless system and will eventually cease accepting hard copies of bill payments at their branches.

Information Bulletin 004 also notes that non-resident businesses that have not paid RST on their purchases of taxable goods and services acquired for resale in Manitoba are not eligible for the registration exception available to small businesses (less than $10,000 annual taxable sales).
