2. Self-assess PST

As a consumer you are required to:
  • Pay the tax to your supplier when taxable goods and services are purchased from a supplier that is licensed to collect the tax
  • Pay the tax directly to the Revenue Division on taxable goods and services purchased from a supplier who did not charge you the tax.  If they were purchased from an unlicensed supplier located outside Saskatchewan, the tax must be submitted with your return on the laid down cost, which includes currency exchange, transportation charges, customs and excise duties, and importation charges, but not the GST. Self-assessed tax should be reported in box E of the return form
  • Collect the tax on used assets sold, allowing a $300 exemption per item when the goods (other than vehicles) are sold to individuals for non-business use
  • Keep complete records of all your business transactions. You must not destroy your records unless you first obtain permission from the Revenue Division. If records are more than six years old they may be destroyed without permission.

3. File and remit

Registered consumers are required to file a tax return on either a monthly, quarterly or annual basis depending on the amount of tax payable.   

A tax return will be sent to you at the end of each reporting period.   Returns may be filed by mail or through the Saskatchewan Electronic Tax Service (SETS).  If there is no tax to report for the period, you must still file a “NIL” return.

If for some reason you do not receive a tax return, your tax information must still be filed by the due date. Simply prepare a return along the general lines of a previous tax return and remit the balance.  To ensure your tax account is properly credited, please quote your licence number when filing the information.

Returns are due by the 20th day of the month following the end of the reporting period. The completed form must be returned by the due date shown on the return to avoid the application of penalty and interest.
