    I have question about the GST registration that Uber asks us to do. I'm new to the country and I'm starting to drive for uber. I know that we need to register for GST but they won't let me do it online. I called CRA and they said I needed to register by mail as a non-resident. Has anyone...

    Greetings guys, I am a new Uber driver. I have a couple questions: 1. a previous employment required me to register as a sole proprietor about 6-7 years ago under my name. I haven't renewed it. So am I right to assume it is no longer valid and I have to register again? 2. I also want to open...

    Forgive me, I know similar topics were discussed before but no clear answer for this case. I read that you might be eligible to write off meals if you travel to a “far away” city. So: 1. How much in kms is far away according to HST and income tax laws? 2. You have to eat at least once in 12...

    This may be a stupid question, but any help is appreciated. On our Annual Tax Summary, we have HST collected. I called the CRA asked about the HST, was told that collected is what you put minus the expenses incurred. Makes sense thus far, my confusion lies herein: Line 101 is defined by the CRA...

    Hi please retweet this or like it to get ubers attention on this issue. Canadian drivers are shown a dollar amount that includes the HST collected that day on their daily earnings. This is giving misleading information for drivers who think they earned more than they really did. I come home each...
