At this course, you will:

  • understand the broad legal framework under which PST arises on legal services
  • learn when you are required to levy and collect PST on legal services
  • identify circumstances under which legal services are exempt from PST

Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 2 hours (this course will contain a minimum of 2 hours pertaining to professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management)
