What a creative way of back peddaling. :dyinglaughing:

No, it's a tax issue because it determines what taxes must be paid.

But if an Alberta customer of a BC supplier prefers to take possession/ownership of goods purchased from a BC supplier in BC rather than in Alberta and pay BC PST on the purchase, I have no complaints about that. The more Albertan's contributing to our government revenues the merrier :-) (Assuming the tax paid to the BC supplier actually gets to the BC government coffers).



As Lone Wolf said, you're backpedalling after your inability to comprehend business issues with a punitive 7% tax that will cost thousands of jobs was pointed out. You don't care about that massive job loss in BC, however, as your comments show pure greed on your part, and your haircut will be 70¢ less so all is good in your little drape-drawn world. Working families will be especially hard hit as it's generally blue collar jobs that are the first to be hit by production type layoffs.

Richard demonstrated the problems his firm, like so many others, is going to face with business lost due to a return to the PST, and your response that shows glee in that job loss and difficulty for BC companies is nothing short of abominable. How awful your life must be when you wish ill on people trying to make a living and keep a roof over their families' heads. Enjoy your haircut.

Where delivery takes place determines what taxes are paid, not who pays the freight.

Wrong. Freight payment determines the terms and place of the sale. If the supplier sells freight prepaid and pays the freight, then the taxes are in the customer's jurisdiction. If the supplier sells FoB plant and the purchaser pays freight, then the supplier's jurisdiction determines taxes.

You really do know nothing about the export business.

Wrong. When I see how little you understand taxation policy, it gets clearer to me why you and many others on the island as uninformed as you opposed the HST. It's clear that you opposed the HST out of fear and laziness, instead of based on pros vs. cons.
Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and promoted by mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of fecal matter by the clean end.

54% of people have no idea how the BC sales tax system works. On the top of the list are Nab and Maplefingers, made obvious by their uninformed comments on this and other threads. The sales tax lessons in the monthly union newsletters just aren't going to cut it!

And you and logical are obviously two of the worst of them LOL. But the return to PST should help clear up at least some of your ill informed confusion.

^^^ Well that's lame. Nab has demonstrated his ignorance on taxation law throughout this thread, then tries the big deflection.

It's obvious that he's got some high and mighty opinion of himself and his "knowledge", but the facts point to a union clown that has never dealt with commodity tax issues in his life.
You are not stupid, I just think you have bad luck when thinking.
