The GST-QST Quick Method Calculator is designed to help you prepare your quarterly tax return for the Quick Method. The rates used are those for businesses that supply services. It will also calculate any ITC as a result of depreciable capital purchases (Box 106/206). Other adjustments and ITCs/ITRs are not calculated, but may be added in a future version. It was designed with the Quebec tax system in mind. There is a customizable HST calculator. Default values are set up for Ontario, but you can change them to suit your needs.. (If you're interested in any other customised version, please contact us.)

Please note: We have thoroughly tested this calculator and have made every effort to make it perfect (we use it ourselves);however, we cannot be held responsible for any errors in filing that you may feel are as a result of using it. Our calculations are based on the relevant federal and provincial publications as well as consultation with tax officials.
Although we have offered this product for free for many years, we feel that, in fairness to those who regularly contribute, it is necessary to charge for its use. The fee is no more than the suggested donation amount that we already had. If you have already made a contribution in the last year, you should have received an e-mail with free access for the remainder of the time paid for. (Click on "Returning User" and enter the details.)There are various options. Please see options below and refer back to this page for option details. We thank you for your understanding.
Unfortunately, for technical reasons the charge is still in $US. We hope to rectify this as soon as possible, but it is beyond our control. Users who sign up for the annual plus in US$ will get a free one time filing automatically included (i.e. 13 months instead of 10).
