Distributed investment plans, including investment limited partnerships, must request specific details in writing from many of their investors by October 15, 2021. Complying with these GST/HST and QST information sharing rules ensures that distributed investment plans have the proper information to update their systems and calculate certain amounts, which must be included in their GST/HST and QST returns. Plans that do not collect the proper data within specific deadlines may see their tax costs increase, while investors may face penalties if they do not share the data within specific timelines as required under the GST/HST and QST information sharing rules.

For more details on these requirements for distributed investment plans and investors, including an overview of the GST/HST and QST information sharing rules, see a recent TaxNewsNow article, "Investment plans — Act now to collect GST details".
