We will be collecting on sales (unless they are exempt classes – please let us know).
While we recognize that many individual vendors do not charge tax, due to the single check out nature of our shop, as well as the consolidated shipping, the laws and advice of our accountant require us to charge taxes on the complete purchase.
The way that the CRA sees it, the shoppers are purchasing items from us, not from the vendors. Once the show ends, we are effectively purchasing the items from the vendors and then getting the items to the shoppers. This is why there needs to be an invoice from each vendor to us.
- For vendors who don’t collect tax, they don’t add HST on their invoices. We remit the full HST to the CRA.
- For vendors who do collect tax, their invoice includes the tax which they are responsible for remitting to the CRA. We remit the difference on the HST collected on the sales and the tax paid to the vendor to the CRA.
Returning vendors do need to re-apply.
We will email returning vendors that are accepted their data sheet from the previous event.
We ask that returning vendors feature at least 10% new listings/products. This is with the goal of ensuring that the fair has new, fresh items for shoppers to explore.
