Use the Quick Method of Accounting
You must use the Quick Method of Accounting to calculate your net tax.
The Quick Method of Accounting simplifies the way you calculate the taxes to be remitted to us. Your transportation system operator collects the GST/HST and QST on your fares and remits to us the taxes calculated at the rates established in the tax agreement concluded with us (2.73% for the GST/HST and 6.16% for the QST).
You cannot claim input tax credits (ITCs) and input tax refunds (ITRs) for your normal business operating expenses because the rates used in this method take these things into account. However, you will be able to claim ITCs and ITRs respecting certain capital purchases (such as smartphone).
