With the province soon heading back to the PST, the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce is hosting a breakfast seminar to assist business in making the transition.

Scheduled for Thursday at the Prestige Hotel & Conference Centre, the event will feature keynote speaker Danny Crawford, senior manager of KPMG Indirect Tax. He will discuss the significant accounting, auditing and tax changes and how they will affect business, and offer tips on how to better plan for the transition and ultimately reduce corporate and personal taxation.

Breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m., with the seminar set for 8 a.m.

The cost is $25 (plus tax) for members and $35 (plus tax) for non-members.
