Ontario Staycation

Recommended Posts

Hi I am adding some hotels to the staycation section of Ufile but noticed they are asking for a HST number. How do I find this??

I stayed in five hotels in 2022, do I really need to call each one to find this out.

Is there no easier option?

Hello Alex44,

ON479 - Ontario staycation tax credit
The GST / HST number is a required field for the Ontario Staycation credit as per the CRA.  
The accommodation expenses must have been paid by you, your spouse or common-law partner, or your eligible child, as set out on a detailed receipt provided by a supplier registered for the Goods and Services Tax (GST)/Harmonized Sales Tax (HST).

Alex, you shouldn't need to call anyone.  Just look on your bill.  If they charged the tax, they need to include their tax number on the invoice.

Don't say you don't have the bills - they are needed to claim the credit.

The B&B we stayed at said that because they are small enough (<$30,000 over 4 quarters according to the CRA website) they did not register for GST/HST number.  Accordingly, they do not charge HST and do not have an HST number (just a registered business number). https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/tax/businesses/topics/gst-hst-businesses/when-register-charge.html

Can we make the claim and Netfile?
