GST Number vs. Business Number

with one comment

It took me a while to realize that the GST number is the same as the Business Number. I post an excerpt from the FAQ of the CRA here because government sites are none for their infamous 404 errors:


4. Where can I find the GST/HST number?
The GST/HST number (also referred to as a Business Number or registration number) must be displayed on receipts, invoices, and contracts totalling $30 or more.

5. Why are only 9 numbers required, when the GST/HST number has 15 characters?
For the GST/HST Registry, only the first 9 numbers need to be entered. Do not include letters.
