The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will be hosting a national webinar on March 25, 2019 for the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA) on the federal carbon tax registration system. Under this system, inter-provincial carriers that operate into, out of, or through Manitoba, New Brunswick, Ontario or Saskatchewan (beginning April 1, 2019), and Nunavut or Yukon (beginning July 1, 2019) will need to register with the CRA.
In turn, carriers may also receive a rebate or be levied a surcharge depending on what fuel they buy and where it is burned. Carriers will be required to report on their fuel usage in quarterly reports sent to the CRA. This webinar will outline how the rebate and surcharge will work along with how carries can register and report. It will also be an excellent opportunity for carriers to directly engage with regulators and to ask any questions you may have about the new federal carbon tax.
It is highly recommended that all inter-provincial carriers have staff participate in this webinar. For webinar details, please click here.
