PLEASE NOTE: 
We are a legal, registered business called "THE SALEM SPECIAL". We abide by all Canadian laws, as such, we declare our profits as income and pay income tax on those profits. 

ALL registered businesses must, by law, collect HST or GST if the business has a GROSS ANNUAL REVENUE of $30,000 or more. 
Anyone in Canada not collecting HST or GST is breaking the law. After lengthy conversations with Revenue Canada I know exactly what is required of THE SALEM SPECIAL regarding collecting taxes. 
Only a few Provinces have switched to HST (Harmonized Sales Tax), Ontario is one of those Provinces, others have kept the old system by not combining the PST (Provincial Sales Tax) and the GST (Goods and Services Tax), Alberta, for example, is one of those Provinces that have kept the Taxes separate. 

On top of all this the amount of tax, HST, GST and PST may also vary from Province to Province. 
What does this mean to SALEM SPECIAL and you?? 
Even though our business, THE SALEM SPECIAL resides in Ontario, if birds are sent to me from another Province I must charge the tax that is applicable to that Province. If the bird entry is coming from a Province that has HST (combined GST & PST) I must collect the HST that is applicable to that Province. If the bird entry is coming from a Province that has not establish an HST and has not combined the GST and PST than I charge the GST ONLY. For this reason entries WILL NOT include perch fee taxes since they vary from Province to Province. 

I also inquired about our entries from America, American entries will pay at the Ontario 
rate which is HST at 13% on the team perch fee ($500) only.
