GST/HST Rebate Services
In most cases, if a First Nation has already filed their own GST/HST rebate application, we are able to get them back additional funds for their budget. We recently completed 12 complimentary GST checkups for First Nations who have been filing their own rebates internally. In 10 of those 12 clients, we were able to find substantial amounts that had been overlooked. As tax refunds have a shelf life, if these overlooked amounts were not addressed immediately, they could have been lost. Our staff will quickly file the required rebates to ensure that refunds do not expire and your money is not lost.
