Re: Application for costs by English Language Arts Network in proceeding initiated by Telecom Notice of Consultation 2017-112— Additional information required
Dear Mr. Rodgers,
On 19 February 2018, the English Language Arts Network (ELAN) applied for costs related to its participation in the proceeding initiated by Telecom Notice of Consultation 2017-112.Footnote1
In order to assist in the processing and consideration of this application, please respond to the following:
Service of application and costs respondents
- Indicate which parties were served with ELAN’s application for costs at the time of its filing with the Commission; and
- If ELAN has a position on the matter, indicate which parties ELAN considers should be responsible for the payment of any costs that are awarded (the costs respondents) and how any costs awarded should be allocated amongst the costs respondents.
Eligibility criteria for costs
- Explain how ELAN assisted the Commission in developing a better understanding of the matters considered and how ELAN participated responsibly in the proceeding.Footnote2
Sales tax rebate
ELAN has indicated on Form IV – Affidavit of disbursements that it is entitled to a 50 percent rebate in connection with both the federal Goods and Services Tax (GST) and the provincial Quebec Sales Tax (QST). Sales tax rebates are generally applied to the tax paid on fees for external consultants, among other things. However on Form III – Summary of Consultant and Analyst Fees for its external consultant, ELAN has not applied either of these rebates.
- Explain this apparent discrepancy and comment on whether ELAN’s claim should be revised in order to reflect these rebates (that is, whether the tax paid by ELAN for its external consultant fees should be reduced by 50 percent of both the GST and QST claimed).
ELAN is to provide its response on these matters by no later than 16 April 2018 and any other party shall have until 23 April to reply.
In the event that ELAN’s application was not served on parties to the proceeding, the present letter shall constitute notice of the application to all parties.
A copy of this letter and all related correspondence shall be placed on the public record of the proceeding.
Please do not hesitate to contact the undersigned by email at email@example.com or by telephone at 613-854-6182 should you have any questions regarding this letter.
