As many of you will be aware, the Government of Canada is making changes to the way that tax is collected in the Province of British Columbia. The fishing and hospitality industry will be affected by these changes and we wanted to notify our valued guests to explain how this will affect the cost of our fishing trips.
As of July 1st, 2010, the Province of British Columbia will be introducing new tax regulations, combining the current 5% Provincial Sales Tax (PST) and the 7% Federal Goods and Services Tax (GST), into a new 12% Harmonized Sales Tax (HST).
For all guests who have already booked trips with us for the 2010 season, we encourage you to make your payments before April 30th, to avoid paying the additional tax costs. All bookings and payments made from May 1st, will qualify under the new tax laws.
To offer an example of the significant price difference, should you pay before the April deadline, we have outlined below how the new tax laws will affect our pricing structure:
|Under Current Taxes||Under New Harmonized Sales Taxes|
|Trip value $ 10,000.00||Trip value $ 10,000.00|
|Hotel Tax $ 24.00||HST $ 1,200.00|
|GST $ 500.00|
|Total $ 10,524.00||Total $ 11,200.00|
