T2125P Including GST/HST as income

Recommended Posts

Why do I need to include GST/HST that I have collected if I am paying this money back in my GST/HST return? I dont see anywhere to specify how much I have collected, is it assuming internally somewhere that 13% of my income I've stated is GST that I will be paying back separately? 

-Professional income

-Gross professional fees including work-in-progress (WIP) and GST/HST collected or collectible

Hi Mike Tax2019,

Professional income - T2125P

In order to enter a professional income, please follow the steps below:

1. In the "Left-side menu on the Interview tab", select "Interview setup".

2. On the screen that appears on the right, go to the "Self-employment" group, check the box "Self-employed business income", also if you paid tax by instalments, go to the "Tax paid by instalments and tax transfer" and check the box "Tax paid by instalments and tax transfer" and click "Next" at the bottom of the page.

3. Return to the "Left-side menu on the Interview tab" and select the item "Self-employment income", and on the right-hand side screen choose the option "T2125P - Professional income".

4. On the page "T2125 - Business identification", enter the relevant information.

5. In the field for "6-digit code from the North American industry classification system", enter the code that best describes your industry. If you do not know the code, click on the tool tip (the question mark) (?) on the right-hand side of the box.

6. On the line "Products or services and their respective percentage (%) in the total income (mandatory for a Quebec return)", in the field on the right, enter your main service or product and enter the percentage (%). If you have other products or services, click on the "plus sign +" icon on the right to generate another field.

7. On the page "Professional income and expenses", you must enter your gross professional fees as well as the business expenses.

8. If you have expenses for work in progress (WIP) that you have excluded the previous year, you must include them in the section entitled "Work in progress at the beginning and at the end of the fiscal period" (at the bottom of the page). You must do the same if you want to exclude work in progress for the tax year.

9. For expenses, if your company is registered for GST and HST (QST), these expenses must be entered before taxes to reflect the ITRs and ITCs you claimed.

10. If you have incurred motor vehicle expenses, complete the subsection "Motor vehicle expenses" as well as the other relevant subsections.

11. If you want to claim expenses for work at your home, complete the subsection "Home office expenses".

12. If you had partners, choose the subsection "Partners" and if you want to claim capital cost allowance for your office furniture and equipment, choose subsection "CCA" and select on this page the classes that apply to your profession.

For more information on professional income, please consult the following links:

I would like to know if the total income in the Annual Tax Summary of Uber drivers are inclusive of HST.  In the Part 3A of the business income line 1 it requires us to put the gross amount including HST.

If the total amount is inclusive of HST, then I just need to fill in the HST amount (found in the tax summary) in line 2.  If not, then I need to gross up the business income (Total + HST) right?

Can you please verify which one is correct?


Thanks a  lot,

Bella Tax 2018
