Conventions: Rv3-1/27-2-2009E-PDF

"This version replaces the one dated April 1995. This memorandum provides information with respect to foreign and domestic conventions. It explains the eligibility requirements that sponsors and non-registered organizers of foreign conventions have to meet to claim a GST/HST rebate in respect of supplies of the convention facility and related convention supplies. It also explains how non-resident non-registered exhibitors attending conventions in Canada may claim a GST/HST rebate in respect of the tax paid on the acquisition of exhibition space at a convention and related convention supplies. It provides details on how Canadian suppliers can pay to, or credit in favour of, sponsors and non-registered organizers of foreign conventions an amount on account of a rebate. It also explains how the GST/HST applies to supplies made by sponsors of domestic conventions, including admissions and supplies made to exhibitors"--p. [1].
