Small biz needs break

I have a request for the Liberal party as we get closer to the day when we go back to the PST. The federal government has always had a level, under which, no GST is collected by Canada’s smallest businesses.

Any business that does less than $30,000 per year does not have to collect and remit any GST. If the Liberal party of B.C. really cares about small business (as it always claims to do), I suggest they adopt this same policy.

Small business finds it onerous enough making a go of it without all the extra work and hardship of collecting tax and increasing their prices to the public in order to do so. Hopefully you seriously consider this and implement it as you make final your arrangements.
