In 2007, the Government of Canada recognized the growing importance of tourism, and developed a Canadian visitor tax refund called the foreign convention and tour incentive program (FCTIP). This program encourages foreign tour operators and convention organizers to bring business to Canada, by offering significant GST/HST rebates (often thousands of dollars) to qualified groups.
Unfortunately, understanding the FCTIP application process can be challenging. The complexity of this Canadian tax rebate for visitors has resulted in many tour operators and meeting organizers failing to apply for their refund, or submitting incomplete applications that don’t produce a rebate.
The purpose of the FCTIP was to provide a tax refund to visitors of Canada, not have them confused by paperwork! So Tour Tax Refunds was launched to handle the administration for you in an efficient and cost-effective way. Our experienced financial team manages everything – from beginning to end – helping you organize documentation, complete the complex forms, submit your claim, and work with FCTIP officials to ensure you obtain the largest refund possible.
We appreciate you bringing your group to Canada and hope you enjoy our beautiful country. Now let us help you benefit even more from the trip by navigating the foreign convention and tour incentive program on your behalf and getting your rebate on its way.
