NEWS FROM THE FIELD
What some are thinking of doing is adding a
new line to their invoice – one below PST and
GST that will be delineated as Carbon Tax. That
way it is being charged to customers but it is
clear that any increased costs are being imposed
This move has become fairly common in
fields involving transportation – shipping,
airlines or courier services – where a fuel surcharge
is added to the bill. Now, with governments
finding new ways to impose levies on
their constituents, business owners are changing
their ways to make it abundantly clear on
the invoice that government is making middle
class life more costly.

A new invoice line
By Martin Charlton Communications
With the carbon tax Constitutional challenge
hitting the courts in Alberta and SaskPower announcing
they were raising rates at the beginning
of next month because of the tax, more
business people in this province are looking at
ways to pass that cost along to their customers.
Given the relatively soft market, businesses
are reluctant to raise prices but at the same time
margins are squeezed so they are also reluctant
to absorb the increased carbon tax.
