BTIPP - Overview

​The Business Tax Instalment Payment Plan (BTIPP) is a popular program that allows you to pay your business tax on a monthly basis instead of a single annual payment.

Benefits of BTIPP

When on BTIPP:

  • Your payment is automatically withdrawn from your chequing account the first day of every month, making budgeting easier.
  • You don't need to worry about the annual business tax payment deadline or risk a 7% late payment penalty.
  • Your taxes are spread over 12 months, starting January 1, with your account being paid in full after your December 1 instalment.

BTIPP instalment amount

Your instalment amount is calculated by dividing your most recent annual tax levy by 12, rounded up to the nearest dollar.

BTIPP Instalment* = Tax Levy / 12

Annual business tax bills with BTIPP

The business tax bill received annually in February shows:

  • an adjusted instalment to reflect the actual tax levy, ensuring your account is paid in full by year end, and the date we will start withdrawing the new instalment amount, and
  • the BTIPP credit-to-date.

BTIPP year end

  • BTIPP automatically continues from year to year.
  • All instalment amounts are reviewed in December.
  • If an adjustment is made to your instalment amount, you will be notified.
