How to settle your account

”Settlement” means that the vendor pays the government a lump sum which is the total licence fees collected minus a commission. At times agreed in the contract between the vendor and the Government, the vendor will submit a Settlement Report to Service BC with payment. The Settlement Report is a list of all licences sold through this online e-licensing system. Any licences sold manually (not using this system) must be recorded on the manual pre-printed form and also submitted to Service BC with payment.
