Foothills GST/HST Procedure – For Export STFT Contracts Only:

For the purpose of billing GST/HST on export contracts, TransCanada requires Shippers to provide a Declaration which notifies TransCanada that the Shipper's STFT service is intended to serve an export market and should be charged 0 per cent GST/HST, including any potential Unutilized Demand Charges (UDC). Shippers who wish to be charged 0 per cent GST/HST on their STFT service and any potential UDC's must execute a Declaration. To do this, the Shipper is requested to execute and return the STFT Declaration attached to the bid form prior to the effective date for each STFT contract entered into. If the STFT service is not for export and should be charged GST/HST please disregard the Declaration attached to the bid form.

Submitting Bids:

Your completed and executed Schedule A should be emailed to [email protected] prior to the deadline shown above.  No deposits are required.
