Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) June 21, 2011
The Harmonized Sales Tax was implemented in the provinces of Ontario and British Columbia on July 1, 2010. With it, a great deal of new legislation and regulations were enacted that significantly changed the way our transactions are being taxed. CCH Canadian is now offering a two‐hour webinar: “An HST Issues Update – One Year Later” (http://www.cch.ca/HSTUpdate), scheduled on Tuesday, June 28, 2011 at 12:00 P.M. Eastern Time. The timely, cost‐effective seminar will focus on the issues faced by taxpayers in applying the HST in BC and Ontario and the audit issues that Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is focusing on.
Additionally, the program will look at the future of HST in light of the referendum that is taking place in BC. It will also look at the issues that taxpayers have faced and the reaction and response of the Department of Finance and CRA to those issues that Taxpayers have raised.
