Naturopathic Doctors & Acupuncturists Now HST Exempt
We are pleased to advise our patients that as a result of February 2014 federal budget, naturopathic doctors and acupuncturists will be added to the list of health care professionals whose services are exempt from the GST/HST under the Excise Tax Act.
The Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND) has placed concentrated efforts this past year on demonstrating the positive impact exempting the GST/HST will have on Canadians seeking a more proactive, naturopathic approach to health and we are pleased to see the government's recognition in this budget.
This move will provide greater access for patients seeking a proactive approach to their health care needs and those looking for an individualized, whole person approach to prevent and treat health issues.
This new tax exemption took effect as of February 12th, 2014 on all naturopathic and acupuncture services provided by the OICC.
