After years of calling for a value-added sales tax, Ontario businesses will finally get their wish on July 1, 2010. And as Audrey Diamant, PricewaterhouseCoopers Indirect Tax Partner, pointed out, it’s not too early to begin planning for the arrival of harmonization. Audrey along with her colleagues, Brent Murray and Graeme McMillan as well as CGI’s Senior vice-president, Claude Seguin, provided their expertise and insights to a gathering of members of the ITAC community on October 8. The forum took a “whole of business” approach to harmonization reviewing contract, systems and marketplace issues in addition to accounting matters in a comprehensive review of the subject. The presentations, which are a treasure trove of information, are now available here.
