Business owners in the Sea to Sky region can make the return to Provincial Sales Tax (PST) smoother thanks to special webinars offered by the B.C. government.
Finance Minister Michael de Jong announced the webinar series, which will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 27 from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., and Thursday, Nov. 29 from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. More sessions will be added based upon demand.
The return to PST occurs on April 1, 2013, and replaces the unpopular Harmonized Sales Tax, which was ended following a referendum in 2011.
The free webinars will cover general principles of the PST and eTaxBC, the new e-service for online registration, return filing and payment, and account maintenance.
Registration for eTaxBC begins Jan. 2, 2013.
Information about how the tax applies, exemptions, registration, transition rules and other topics is available at www.PSTinBC.ca.
