pst switch

The HST to PST switch happens in April of 2013.

The provincial government is doing its best to help businesses in the interior come to terms with the return to PST this April.

The province is holding seminars in a number of interior communities outlining the general principles of the tax and how to go about registering for it.

Seminars are scheduled for Kamloops on Jan. 21, Revelstoke the following day, Enderby on Jan. 23 and in Penticton on the 24th with further information sessions coming in over 50 communities before the April 1 return to PST from HST.


$1 will be donated to the BC chapter of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation by Beacon News for every completed reader survey. Support a great cause today!


The seminars will be held in association with local chambers of commerce to help localize the transition and will also cover things like new eTaxBC online business registration service. The government is relying on the chambers of commerce to help spread the word and  help make the transition a smooth one.

Businesses can register for a new PST number online, in person or by mail or fax.
