Employer Health Tax (EHT)

Employer Health Tax (EHT) is a payroll tax paid by employers based on remuneration paid to employees who:

  • report for work at a permanent establishment of the employer in Ontario
  • are attached to a permanent establishment of the employer in Ontario, or
  • do not report for work at a permanent establishment of the employer, but who are paid from
    or through a permanent establishment of the employer in Ontario.

Here at National Tax Service, it’s important we get the most updated and current information for our clients so they understand the latest changes to all the relevant legislations including The Employer Health Tax (EHT).

To that end, when some updated tax exemption rules came down in January affecting the amount of annual Ontario payroll that could be exempt from EHT, we understood the changes and implemented them immediately. We understand it’s our job to stay on top of these updates for all businesses like private sector employers affected by the changes.

We’re here to help with eligibility requirements and taxes as they pertain to this important piece of legislation and we have an expert team on hand ready to help with personal or business taxes.

Remember, we’ve assembled a group of experts that encompass accountants, former Canada Revenue Agency auditors and tax lawyers so any concerns you might have about the EHT or any other relevant law affecting your small business can be answered by us.

We even offer tax audit assistance to better serve our business and individual clients. Why not get in touch with us today?
