Setting Up Tax Services Tax Services is essential if you are required to report tax information (e.g., GST, HST or PST).

Click Step 1 below. Step 1: Set up Tax Authorities Tax Authorities are the federal and provincial agencies to whom you remit tax payments. CCSL deals with two government agencies for sales taxes: Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) for GST and HST The Provincial Treasurer for PST. Study the PROFILE page for one of the Tax Authorities.
