CPA Canada commodity tax committee

Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) advocates for better indirect tax policy and administration in Canada through its CPA Canada Commodity Tax Committee.

This committee gives Canada’s CPAs a voice in influencing indirect tax, customs and trade policy and administration in Canada. Composed of representatives from some of Canada’s larger accounting firms, the committee aims to identify, raise and help resolve commodity tax issues with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and Finance Canada.
