QUÉBEC, April 16, 2020 /CNW Telbec/ - Québec's some 391 000 businesses will have until September 1, 2020 to pay their annual registration fee to the Registraire des entreprises. The Minister of Labour, Employment and Social Solidarity and Minister Responsible for the Mauricie Region, Jean Boulet, made the announcement today to allow businesses to concentrate on restarting their activities.
Businesses are required to update the information contained in the enterprise register every year. The annual registration fee for 2020 ranges from $36 to $92, depending on the registrant's legal form. The payment deferral represents $24.5 million in relief for business owners and organizations. Note that businesses and organization are still required to file their annual updating declaration by the prescribed date.
This measure is consistent with the Revenu Québec measure to extend the deadline for paying any income tax owing for the 2019 taxation year to September 1, 2020.
"Our government made a commitment to assist and support Québec businesses in restarting the economy. The announced assistance is in addition to the basket of measures already available to business owners to help them restart their activities once the economy gets going again. Our government is aware of the challenges facing businesses and wants to work with the business community to find solutions. I'm urging business owners to hang in there. We're going to get through this together."
