Reminder – HST is coming

Just a reminder to all of my clients that the provincial government has approved the harmonization of the GST and the PST, and that change will take place on July 1st, 2010.

This means that the tax rate you pay on many goods and services will increase as of that date. If you only paid GST on something before, you will now have to pay the combined GST+PST rate (the HST) which is 13% tax.

Because Registered Massage Therapists are required to charge GST on their services in Ontario, that means my fees will be increasing as of July 1st. Please note that the fee increase will ONLY cover the new tax rate – this is not a fee increase that I will benefit from.

More details will be coming within the next couple of months. Thanks for your understanding.
