Beverage product distributors must report the sales of all deposit-bearing beverage products in the province and remit the deposits paid by their customers to purchase these beverages directly to their distributor agent responsible for recycling the beverage containers post-consumer.
Distributors who are represented by Encorp can use the forms provided below to do so depending on the type of product sold. Containers for non-alcohol and alcohol beverage products are reported separately using different forms.
Deposit Remittances for Non-Alcohol Beverage Containers
IMPORTANT NOTICE – CHANGES IN EFFECT SINCE APRIL 1, 2023
Please read this notice that was sent to all our non-alcohol beverage product distributors regarding changes in effect at Encorp and how these changes affect deposit remittances.
Non-alcohol beverage product distributors – represented by Encorp as their agent for recycling beverage containers – must use the form provided below to report and remit the deposits collected on beverage containers for non-alcohol beverages sold.
The form is available and can be filled out in either of these formats: electronic format or fillable PDF format.
Unless otherwise specified by Encorp, this remittance form must be completed and submitted by distributors within 10 days of the end of their monthly accounting cycle. Payment must be received within 30 days of the end of the accounting cycle.
Important Note About HST
Encorp does not make HST payments on beverage container deposits on your behalf. Our form removes the HST portion of the deposit remittance. You must pay the HST portion on deposits (total shown in box“H”) directly to the Canada Revenue Agency.
