Canada: New QST rules, financial institutions in Quebec

New Quebec sales tax (QST) regulations concern changes to the tax treatment of supplies of financial services and rules for “selected listed financial institutions” (SLFIs) that took effect on 1 January 2013.

Financial institutions that qualify as SLFIs may—for QST purposes—need to determine that they properly apply the new regulations when preparing their upcoming 2016 goods and services tax / harmonized sales tax (GST / HST) and QST returns. 

In addition, SLFIs may need to review the calculations in their previously filed GST/HST and QST returns to as far back as 2013 to confirm that they were filed correctly.
