MUNICIPAL ACCOMMODATION TAX (MAT) NOW APPLICABLE IN THE TOWN OF SOUTH BRUCE PENINSULA

In 2017, the Province of Ontario gave municipalities the ability to levy a Municipal Accommodation Tax through the Municipal Act, Ontario Regulation 435/17: Transient Accommodation Tax. More than a dozen towns and cities in Ontario have a Municipal Accommodation Tax, including Ottawa, Toronto, London, Waterloo Region, Windsor, Oakville, Kingston, Barrie and Sudbury.


On March 16, 2021 South Bruce Peninsula Council passed By-Law 30-2021, approving the implementation of a four percent (4%) mandatory MAT applicable on all short-term accommodations under 30 days.


The MAT came into effect on January 1, 2022 and applies to all accommodation sold for a continuous period of 30 days.


A tax of 4% of the purchase price of the accommodation only (the room rate) will now be charged by ALL accommodation providers in the Town of South Bruce Peninsula. The 4% would not apply to other associated services and amenities, like meeting room rentals, food and beverages, room services, Internet and phone charges.


The MAT is a mandatory fee, and must be paid to the accommodation provider when paying for the booking. The fees collected by accommodation providers are then remitted to the municipality. Note that HST is charged on the total.


More information can be found on the Town's website at: https://www.southbrucepeninsula.com/en/business-and-development/municipal-accommodation-tax.aspx#How-much-is-the-tax


Please note that the rates and totals on this website are not including the 4% MAT as I am unable to add a "second" tax. I will provide the calculation after booking.
