Deadline Reminder: 2016 EHT Returns

As a general rule, if your company is an employer and paid Ontario salaries greater than $450,000 in 2016 you are required to file an Employer Health Tax Return ("EHT Return") with the Ministry of Finance by March 15, 2017. This $450,000 threshold on salaries must be shared amongst associated companies, meaning that if you own multiple companies and their combined salaries are greater than $450,000 you would be required to file EHT Returns for both companies.  For more detailed guidelines and how it may apply to your company, you can visit the Ontario Ministry of Finance’s website or contact our office at 613-235-2000.
