We don't know about you but for us the trip to the checkout was never as exciting as it should have been. Your cart's all loaded up, you're eager for your swag to ship so you can enjoy it... you should be excited. So why that faint sense of dread? Maybe its because you know the Tax Man is there, eagerly waiting to pick your pocket.
Well taxes are an unfortunate fact of life and we just have to console ourselves with the hope that our hard earned tax dollars will be well spent (ya right). That doesn't mean we have to like it though and, while Tax Evasion is totally illegal, Tax Avoidance is not just acceptable it's encouraged. Now generally speaking, when someone refers to Tax Avoidance they're talking about income taxes and avoiding them by using various deductions etc. They aren't talking about the sales taxes tacked on at the checkout. It's nearly impossible to get out of paying those taxes. Wait.... NEARLY impossible?
You heard right, we DO have a way to help you avoid paying at least one of those lame ass ST's; PST, GST, QST, RST, and that most unbodacious of them all the HST.
As a new business with low projected revenue for the first year FoC 420 Merch doesn't have to register for a GST number. No GST number means we don't collect GST or the HST (but we do pay it on the stuff we buy. Registered businesses can collect a rebate on the GST they've paid, we can't)
What that means is that when you get to the checkout you might notice something missing...the tax (most if not all of it). Technically you'll still be paying the tax since, like any business, we pass costs along to our customers. But you will only pay tax (except PST) on the wholesale price instead of the retail price.
Have a look to the sidebar and you can see what taxes you can expect at checkout.
All that being said this is only going to last until its over. There's no legal issue with what we're doing but at some point we'll be forced to register for a GST number and start charging it. That could be a year from now, it could be as soon as our second fiscal quarter. It all depends on the amount of revenue we bring in, not the profits on that revenue. Hell if it was based on profit we'd keep it going as long as we could. The requirement for GST registration is $30k in revenue (not profit) during a fiscal quarter. So it should be a while, but if we're doing things right it might not be long at all. Until then enjoy the savings!
