Distributed investment plans should collect investor information by December 31, 2019
Distributed investment plans should ensure they have collected investor information by December 31, 2019. These plans must obtain details from their investors in order to comply with upcoming GST/HST and QST obligations. Plans that do not collect the data by December 31 and that did not request the required information from their investors by October 15 may have their provincial attribution percentages increased.
Distributed investment plans rely on cooperation from their investors in order to prepare their calculations and update their systems so they can fulfill their GST/HST and QST filing obligations.
For full details on this requirement, including how it affects different types of investors and the specific details that must be requested, see TaxNewsFlash-Canada 2019-38, "Investment Plans — Act Now to Obtain Investor GST Details", or contact your KPMG advisor.
