GST Bonds

Goods imported into Canada are subject to the Goods and Service Tax (GST) or the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST). The GST was implemented in Canada on January 1, 1991. The GST/HST is a tax on final consumption, however, unlike a retail sales tax, the GST/HST has a multistage collection process. We can help secure a GST bond on your behalf. Here’s a link to a GST bond application form and more information about Goods and Services Tax bonds.

Canadian Lost Instrument Bonds

Canadian lost instrument bonds are required to be provided by some institutions in order to obtain certain types of replacement documentation including when a person or organization loses the original(s).
