Distributors must regularly report sales and submit the deposit fees paid by customers for the purchase of non-alcoholic beverage containers to Encorp Atlantic.
Our Deposit Remittance Form must be completed and submitted within 10 days of the end of your accounting period. Payment must be received within 30 days of the end of your accounting period.
We encourage all distributors to make sure they are using our most up-to-date Deposit Remittance Form and not older versions of this form since we continue to receive deposit remittance reports in various formats which are no longer valid. You can tell if the form you are using is our most up-to-date version if it has seven categories in which you must report each beverage product sold (these correspond to the various types of material the containers are made with):
- PET 1
- HDPE 2
- Cartons (Gable Top, Tetra)
- Other Plastics & Pouches (PP5, PS6, OTHER 7)
If you are using an older version of the form – which does not present these seven material categories precisely as detailed above – you must make the switch to our new form by May 31, 2021. Remittance reports that do not conform to our current Deposit Remittance Form will no longer be accepted after this date
Our most up-to-date Deposit Remittance Form is always available on our website at encorpatl.ca (look for the “Deposit Remittance Form” page under the “Distributors” menu). You can download and use a PDF version, which you must then submit to us by email, or for a faster and easier process, you can choose to fill out the electronic version of the form, which submits your data directly to us and allows you to print and save a copy for your records. (Take note that for best results, the electronic form should be viewed and filled out using Internet browsers other than Internet Explorer.)
If you need assistance in determining which material category certain beverage products fall under, our staff can assist. Send us an Excel list with the names of each product you are unsure of to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will confirm the appropriate corresponding categories.
