Webinars will help businesspeople transitioning back to PST

If you have a business and you're looking for help with the transition back to the Provincial Sales Tax, help is available.

If you have a business and you’re looking for help with the transition back to the Provincial Sales Tax (PST) on April 1, 2013, take advantage of the free webinars scheduled over the next couple of weeks.
