COVID 19 - Payments due to various Governments Agencies

COVID 19 - Payments due to various Governments Agenciestaxesdue

The question is: When payments are due to CRA and the Ministry of Finance (Ontario) – which ones can I delay?

Before we jump in, we must understand the meaning of “trust funds”. Trust funds mean “holding property or assets on behalf of another person.”

If you collected any funds on behalf of CRA or the Ministry of Finance they are deemed to be Trust Funds. The following deadlines remain unchanged:

CRA TRUST FUNDS

GST/HST:   Due as normal

Payroll Source deductions: Due as normal
