Goods and Services Tax (GST) and Provincial Sales Tax (PST) Filing

Freedom Business and Tax Centre can track, calculate and file GST and PST returns for businesses monthly, quarterly or annually.


Tracking and calculating payroll can be tricky.

WorkSafe BC Filing

Certain businesses are required to file WCB reports monthly, quarterly or annually. The rate and amount due is dependent on a business’s services or products, number of employees and payroll paid or subcontractor rate.

Freedom Business and Tax Centre can calculate, file and complete WCB returns for businesses of any type or size.
