As a result, affected businesses must update their systems, including point-of-sale systems, as soon as possible to account for this change. The measure, which was announced in the province’s 2017 budget on 22 March 2017, is part of the province’s plan to expand Saskatchewan’s PST tax base by eliminating certain exemptions and by taxing many insurance premiums and services related to real property.
