Businesses that sell or lease taxable goods, or sell software or taxable services in B.C., are now able to register to collect the tax.

Registration for the provincial sales tax opened Jan. 2. The PST will be re-implemented April 1.

Businesses can register three ways: on-line at www.gov.bc.ca/etaxbc/register. On-line registration should take about 10 to 20 minutes to complete. In person at the nearest Service BC Centre or by mail or fax by completing the application for registration for provincial sales tax (FIN 418) found at: www.gov.bc.ca/pst (go to forms and publications.) Businesses also can get the form at the nearest Service BC Centre, or by calling 1-877-388-4440 to have one mailed to you. Mail or fax the completed form to the address or fax number shown on the form, along with the appropriate documentation.

A new PST number will be assigned once the business registration application is processed.
