    Nil consideration election deadline fast approaching for elections in place prior to 2015

    The nil consideration election for "GST/HST" purposes in section 156 of the Excise Tax Act (ETA) was updated recently with changes in effect Jan. 1, 2015. Section 156 allows members of a closely related group to treat certain taxable supplies between them as having been made for no consideration. Essentially, the election eliminates the need to collect and remit taxes by one member and then claim an input tax credit by the other member, which can sometimes result in cash flow issues, particularly with large transactions and differing reporting periods.
