Sales Tax Overview

What do I need to do?

As an Uber partner, you’re an independent contractor—you work for yourself. This means you’re required to report your income and applicable taxes, just like any business owner.

You’ll have to register and provide your GST and QST numbers to Uber before you can start driving. This will allow us to collect and remit the sales tax for each of your rides on your behalf.

Keep in mind

Although you’re not the one paying Revenu Quebec the GST/QST, you’re still responsible for filing your annual GST/ QST return at the end of the year (at the same time as filing your personal income tax). Your annual Tax Summary available on will help you report your GST and QST amounts.

We encourage you to work with a tax professional if you need advice on filing your taxes.

Providing GST/QST numbers

Before you start driving with Uber, you must provide your tax registration numbers (GST and QST).

If you don’t have those numbers, you can request them from Revenu Quebec. You'll then need to update your Uber Tax Profile with your tax numbers in order to take trips.

Quick accounting method

If you have registered for GST/QST through Uber, you have chosen to file using the Quick Method of Accounting as part of Uber’s agreement with Revenu Québec.

GST/ QST is already charged on the fares your riders pay. Each week, you get a GST/QST credit of approximately 6% of the total ridesharing fares you charged your riders. This amount is automatically remitted to you weekly by Uber.

If you have chosen the Quick Method of Accounting, you are unable to request any additional sales tax credit or refund for your current operating expenses beyond the 6% that you will have already received. However, you may be eligible for such a credit on capital expenses such as a vehicle purchase.

You may choose to change your accounting method to the regular method by revoking your election respecting the Quick Method of Accounting . If you decide to switch your filing method, Uber will continue to remit GST and QST on your behalf on the basis of the quick accounting rate, and these will be considered instalment payments made by you. You will then be able to claim your input tax credits using the regular method by filing your returns.

Please note: If you wish to switch from the Quick accounting method to Regular accounting method, you must file a revocation of election with Revenu Québec.

Remember, your tax situation is different from everyone else’s. So working with a tax professional can be your best option.
