Business Tax Instalment Payment Plan (BTIPP)

The Business Tax Instalment Payment Plan (BTIPP) is a program that allows you to pay your Business Improvement Area (BIA) tax on a monthly basis instead of a single annual payment. Your payment automatically comes out of your chequing account the first day of every month, making budgeting easier and avoiding the risk of a 7% late payment penalty.
