Financial Services has published new guidelines on how to self assess Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) on purchases made at Queen’s University. To self assess means to calculate how much tax should be paid on the purchase of a good or service, and then to remit the tax. To view these guidelines, visit the Policies tab within the Financial Services website.
The new guidelines contain general rules for self assessment along with specific rules for different types of goods and services. Specific examples are provided.
Please review the above mentioned guidelines to ensure that you are self assessing tax properly.
We have also published a new cheque requisition form with the option to self assess the full amount of HST, provincial portion of HST, or another amount of HST. These options have been added to assist you in appropriately communicating any self assessment requirements to Accounts Payable.
