Distribution platform operators must file the new QST annual information return

Distribution platform operators that are registrants for Quebec sales tax (QST) purposes must file the new QST annual information return by 30 June 2022 for the 2021 calendar year.

The information return includes certain details about distribution platform operators’ online sellers and supplies facilitated through the operators' platforms, including their online sellers' online store URL and the amount of qualifying or designated qualifying supplies of goods facilitated through their platforms. 

Note that distribution platform operators are not required to file similar GST/HST information returns for their 2021 calendar year, but instead must file GST/HST information returns for the 2022 calendar year, which are due by 30 June 2023.
