Real estate firm's licence suspended and receiver appointed

The Real Estate Council of BC (RECBC) has suspended the licence of 8th Avenue Elite Realty Ltd., dba 8th Avenue Elite Realty ("Elite") in Surrey, and has frozen its bank accounts. The RECBC says it suspended Elite's licence in the public interest, as a result of the failure of the firm to account for trust monies held on behalf of clients.

When you are selling a commercial property or even a residential property owned by a company, you must collect GST on the purchase price. It is the obligation of the buyer to pay the GST. But it is the duty of the seller to collect it from the buyer and remit it to the Canada Revenue Agency. If GST is not collected, CRA will go after the seller first.


What is an executor, and what does the executor do?
The executor is named in a will. In general, the executor gathers up the estate assets, pays the deceased’s debts including taxes, and divides what remains of the deceased’s estate among the beneficiaries.
