Invoices

Invoices

This is an idea that stemmed from the conversation here: http://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/Paying-for-your-service/Invoices/td-p/26945

 

I think it's important that Public Mobile generates invoices for its customers regardless if it's for business accounts or personal accounts. It's a proper way to account for the services rendered and paid for. I understand that Public Mobile is a prepaid service but I think PM is the only carrier that doesn't generate invoices for their customers. I'm not even talking about paper records, we can just do it all online.

 

Thoughts?

It's a good idea but it's  an added cost to a already cost effective carrier.  I don't know of any prepaid carrier in Canada to offer invoices and all payments can be viewed in Public Mobile's self serve. In the future invoices might become norm but I can't see a need right now

Good idea @deltatux

It would be nice to see an option to access invoices in the self-serve section for those who need it can view or print or download pdf for themselves.  

 

If cost is the sole issue preventing PM from issuing invoices, then provide the HST number easily to those who request it.  And as an added convenience, those who want invoice should have an option in self-serve to request invoices.  This way the system is not burdened with generating invoices for all.   I suspect majority of customers fall into the category who don't need the formal invoice as phone bills don't figure into our tax filings.

I don't believe that it should cost anything except for having the system generate these invoices. I know that invoices on WIND are all generated automatically. Once the system is set up, it should be straight forward with little maintenance in the event it fails.

A business charging tax, especially on amounts greater than $30 must provide a receipt when asked. Regardless of it's purpose.

 

See CRA document on this: http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/E/pub/gp/rc4022/rc4022-13e.pdf (page 14).

Could always buy vouchers; they would be your receipts.

@Luddite, that isn't a good way to keep track of your expenses and report for taxes. It's also super inconvenient. I don't understand why there's no invoice generated by the system, it's pretty straight forward

I have a business and am HST registered.  I have always used my credit card statements as my receipts for my HST payable and my income tax. All you need to do is take the total amount of the charge and in Ontario you would divide it by 1.13 which gives you the amount before taxes.  You do not need a sales tax number when filing either one, but they must provide the number if asked. If your looking for full carrier services then go to a full service carrier.

Hello, Though a bank manager may be willing or unwilling to compare your credit-card statements to your affidavit, which one would need to know how to word and notarize, going to a lawyer would be the easier route. When I last used janeharveylawyers.com in 2004, I paid either $20 or $25 per attestation. The law firm has branches throughout the GTA. I am in no way associated with the firm or any party thereof, and do not receive any inducement or compensation for mentioning its name.
