Encorp has a very handy section on its website with information pertinent for distributors.
Go to encorpatl.ca and consult the pages under the Distributors menu to find:
- Information on the registration process for new distributors with links to all applicable forms that must be filled and sent to the Department of Environment and Local Government (DELG).
- A convenient link to the DELG Beverage Container Registration Form. All deposit-bearing beverage products sold in New Brunswick must be registered with DELG, and this includes beverage products which were not deposit-bearing in the past but now are due to changes to the Beverage Containers Program’s Exclusion Policy which came into effect on April 1, 2020.
- Information on how taxes apply to beverage products and their deposits. Under the provincially legislated “half-back” system in New Brunswick, a tax-inclusive deposit of 10¢ is imposed on containers for non-alcoholic beverages but only half this amount, or 5¢, is given back to a consumer on the return of the container. Only the refundable 5¢ portion of the deposit is excluded from the tax base while the other 5¢ that is not refunded to the consumer is subject to tax on the same basis as the beverage.
- A Deposit-Remittance Form – with options to fill electronically or to download, print and submit a PDF – which distributors can use to report sales and submit deposits for non-alcoholic beverage containers directly to Encorp Atlantic.
We post and archive all emailed communications to distributors, as well as blog posts from our seasonal Journal, on our News & Updates for Distributors page and recommend bookmarking this page for quick reference.
