As an fittcoach partner, you’re an independent contractor. When you work for yourself, you’re responsible to collect, remit, and file your sales tax—HST in Ontario, GST in Alberta—on all your training sessions with fittcoach to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). If you are a trainer in Quebec, fittcoach will collect and remit your sales tax on your behalf. Check out our Quebec Sales Tax page for more details.
All fares charged by all trainer partners (trainers like you) are now subject to HST/GST. No matter how much income you earn from training, this requirement stays the same.
Luckily, HST/GST is already included in every fare your clients pay. So, while you still need to remit HST/GST, it does not impact your take-home earnings. Plus, when you register for an HST/GST number, you may be eligible to claim input tax credits (ITC) back on some of your expenses as a trainer.
A tax professional can help you understand how to remit and file your taxes correctly and claim your potential input tax credits.
