Companies must submit Goods and Services Tax or Harmonized Sales Tax (GST/HST) returns to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) based on self-assessment of imported goods. If you import taxable supplies, you must assess the value of the goods, calculate the GST/HST amount due, and submit the total self-assessed amount with your tax return. You can claim any rebates to which you may be entitled from the government by filing manually.
