Thats what I figured. On another topic for Canadians.

I just went to try to get the Cosmetic Notification Form and it won't let me get it. Ive tried on 3 computers and all are updated to the latest adobe. Anyone else having problems?

Hey Scottie - the CNF prefers Explorer to work properly. I've never had problems getting in.

As for tax, I started charging it from the start. The forms to do you GST / PST are really, really easy to do. I opted for quarterly so it wasn't too big an amount of money.

That is bizarre. Do you have your cookies on?

I got it to work on my pc. Guess it doesn't like Macs. Now I have to figure out how to fill it out. I'm going though the instructions. If I fill any part out wrong and send it in, what happens? Can I still sell it.

I now have to learn about this government part and what I need to do. I think I'm going to going the Canadian Guild and get insurance though them. Seems to be much cheaper.

Jumping on the tax topic, is there something about not charging taxes on wholesale? Or was that just something I read that was specific to the states?

I've been lucky enough to stumble into an opportunity to sell some body products in a local spa so I've been going nuts getting that all ready. I'm not worried about making 30k this year, but I don't want to shoot myself in the foot if I have to raise prices 15% down the road.

Lindy, I think I owe you a beer for all the guidance you've posted over the years

Scottie - once you've done it a few times it will get easy. If you make a mistake they (Health Canada) will send you an email. You can start selling the product right away as they are not approving your product you are simply listing it with them.

Stacy with wholesale if you have a GST number then you would only charge that. If you are in a province that has HST then you need to check with your province to see if you charge it. I know when we had it (BC) I was exempt from HST when I was buying product.
