Dear Members,

RE:  GST Now Required on RMTBC Membership Dues and Services

In the spring of 2017, the RMTABC (the Association) received notification from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), the Association’s 2016 GST return as filed was going to be examined prior to assessment. As part of the examination, CRA has determined that members receive direct tangible benefits and services that are above the threshold allowed by CRA and therefore GST should be charged.

We are currently working with CRA to reconcile our GST account. Moving forward commencing January 1, 2018 the RMTBC will be collecting GST on membership dues and services, excluding insurance.

This issue is separate from the continuing work that the RMTBC is having with our colleagues across Canada to move the profession to be exempt from GST/HST. As you may know, this change will only occur once there are five (5) provinces regulated, currently there are only four (4).
