GST / HST Quick Method Calculator

As a small business, we file our GST 4 times a year, we’ve had trouble finding a decent GST/HST calculator. I always like to read the information on the CRA website first and then find a calculator to see if I understood how file pretty well.

The quick method is another accounting option available to help small businesses calculate their net tax for GST/HST purposes. This method reduces paperwork and makes it easier to calculate GST/HST remittances and file GST/HST returns because it eliminates the need to report the actual GST/HST paid or payable on most purchases.

When you use the quick method, you still charge the GST at the rate of 5% or the HST at the applicable rate on your taxable supplies of property and services.

Make sure that your supplies are eligible for the quick method, here’s a link to double check if your supplies are eligible: Supplies not eligible

When making your quick method calculations, your first $30,000 is entitled to a 1% credit on eligible supplies (including the GST/HST) on which you collect the GST at 5% or the HST at the applicable rate.
