Are tax increases impacting your organization? Complete our questionnaire and enter to win a pair of roundtrip tickets to anywhere WestJet flies*

The Greater Vancouver Board of Trade recently launched an advocacy initiative around the layering of taxes on businesses.

Over the past two years, governments at all levels have announced a laundry list of new costs and tax increases, the cumulative impact of which is going to be felt by B.C. businesses in 2019 — including CPP premium increases, minimum wage increases, the new employer health tax, property tax increases, corporate income tax increases, and more.

If you're a business owner, CFO, or an accountant with a story to share about how new tax policies are impacting your organization's bottom line, we want to hear from you!

To participate, complete this confidential financial questionnaire. Submit your completed questionnaire by Tuesday, May 21, to be entered in the prize draw.

Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out to our Policy Team at .
