CRA finds that a course prepping students to write an English proficiency test was not GST/HST exempt

CRA found that the supply by a private corporation of instruction in a preparation course for the students’ writing of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test did not qualify as “language courses that form part of a program of second-language instruction in either English or French” as required under ETA Sched. V, Pt. III, s. 11, so that such supply was not exempt.
