A driver gets licensed by the city; his next step is to be registered with the government as a taxi driver, so he gets a GST number. The way the GST or the HST works in Ontario is that it's built into the metre fare. There are no choices—we have to. Our drivers must be registered to collect the HST. Every charge they go through by paying the brokers imposes HST. They go through the process of accumulating their fares, making their calculations, and being able to remit them either quarterly or monthly.
