Registering for PST

The PST/GST taxation system applies to British Columbia.

If you are a regular supplier of legal services, you must register for PST purposes.  This is in addition to your registration for GST purposes. 

If you are a member of a law firm, then it is the law firm, or the partnership, as opposed to individual law corporations or partners, that are considered to be providing the legal services.  It is the law firm or partnership who registers for PST purposes.

You can register online through eTax BC, at any Service BC Centre by using their computers, or at the Ministry of Finance office at 1802 Douglas Street in Victoria.  You can also register by printing and completing the registration form available online and then mail or fax it to the Ministry of Finance.
