Summary of the Exemption Granted by the Minister Respecting Group Events
A restaurant establishment operator that supplies meals as part of a group event covered by a written agreement concluded with a client can be exempted from having to provide a bill produced using a sales recording module (SRM).
A bar operator or a person that ordinarily makes a supply of property or services in said bar (or at its entrance or near the establishment) can also be exempted from having to provide a bill produced using an SRM in a group-event situation similar to the one described above.
If the exemption is granted, the operator or person must email or fax the client covered by the written agreement a scanned copy of the original bill and a payment request. In addition, the operator or person must keep the original bill produced using an SRM, a copy of the payment request, the written agreement and proof that the bill was transmitted.
The above is only a summary of the exemption. Note that the full text of the exemption takes precedence over this summary.
