From an article at About.com’s Small Business Canada section, written by Susan Ward:

GST/HST for the reporting period July 1st to September 30th is due October 31st.

Remember that if you are a GST/HST registrant, you must file GST/HST returns on schedule, even if there is nothing to report (as you didn’t collect any GST/HST during that reporting period).

Miss Ward goes on to note that despite the fact that this is an annual occurrence that Canadian business owners must contend with, it can be a rather “convoluted and complicated” process, and exemptions and rules you may not even know about can still be encountered. She offers these additional resources for further reading:
