So far, there have been no deferrals announced for HST or Payroll taxes, both of which the CRA consideres to be amounts owed to them in trust.  Both corporate tax and HST audits have been suspended until after August 31st however, and in general the CRA will not be initiating any collection activities for these amounts.
