Application for GST/HST Public Service Bodies Rebate
If you are a charity, you are eligible to file a GST/HST Public Service Bodies rebate every 6 months in order to recover the Federal and Provincial portions of the GST/HST the charity paid on expenditures. NPOs are eligible to recover GST/HST as well if greater than 40% of their income is received from government sources (or 40% of their income on average over the past three years).
Many organizations fail to record GST/HST properly in their recordkeeping. Please seek advice on recovering GST/HST on your capital expenditures, mileage reimbursements and other areas commonly overlooked.
