  GST - everything you need to know!

GST 2012

 GST is involved in Guiding matters in two ways:

1.     Units/Districts pay GST on some purchases they make

2.     Units/Districts must charge GST to families on certain activities, and remit this to the Canada Revenue Agency, via our Bridging River Area office. 

GENERAL

It may be advantageous for your District/Unit if you make a rebate claim for GST you have paid on purchases of supplies etc.  The rebate amount is 50% of the GST paid for general purchases see below for the special case of expenses relating to activities where GST is collected.  A copy of the form can be accessed here for pdf.

CHARGING GST ON CAMPS, SLEEPOVERS AND EVENTS was revised in 2012

All levels of Guiding, including units, must charge GST on overnight events, and some day events.

Our Area website has a simplified version of the National booklet detailing this click here to access.  The full booklet is available on the Forms page of the Provincial website.
