New Taxes Imposed as of October 1st, 2018

September 21st,

With only 9 days notice, all accommodation providers with even a minimum of one unit will now be charged with collecting an additional 8% PST (Provincial Sales Tax) and 3% MRDT (Municipal Regional District Tax)on top of the existing 5% GST (Federal Goods and Services Tax).

This 16% tax is not reflected in the nightly rate for the house, but will be added on for the total, the same way hotels do…..

I am not happy about this.  I am still trying to at least hold out and not have to join a corporate body like AirBnB or VRBO which would then add an additional 10 – 20% on as a service fee…..

Thank you to all my guests for your continued patronage!

Regards, Zoë.

FANTASTIC is all I can say. This is a real showpiece you have here. Thanks for a really great time. We'll make sure and come...
