Presenter: Michelle Waitzman
Charging, collecting and remitting sales taxes is just another administrative nightmare for many self-employed editors. In this session, you’ll find out whether you need to register to collect GST and other sales taxes, which clients you need to bill for which taxes, what you need to pay to the CRA and your provincial government and when, and how to pay as little as possible.
