Press Release – North Star Fleet Solutions Announces Webinars on Hidden Cost of Trip Permits

North Star Fleet Solutions will host “The Hidden Cost of Trip Permits,” a free webinar on Feb. 4, 5, 11, and 12 to help trucking and oilfield service companies manage vehicle tax and licensing for equipment moves in Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia.

Led by North Star Fleet Solutions managing partner Sandy Johnson, the webinar will provide strategies for vehicle licensing and sales tax compliance. Specifically, it will address the cost-effectiveness of using prorated licensing under IFTA and IRP versus single trip permits.

  • How to determine whether you owe a portion of sales tax on trailers, parts, and repairs to British Columbia or Saskatchewan.
  • How to calculate an accurate chargeback rate to recover fees and sales tax from customers.
  • How to improve compliance and reduce the risk of audits, fines, and other penalties.
  • How to streamline the permitting process and reduce the risk of delays or unexpected costs.

Who should participate:
Anyone responsible for vehicle tax and licensing at Alberta, B.C. or Saskatchewan-based trucking or oilfield service companies.
