Contract With a Customer
If you make trips under a verbal or written contract with a customer that allows payment to be deferred until a time other than the end of the trip, select “Tarif fixe par contrat” (contract rate) or “Tarif fixe c.” in your certified sales recording system (SRS).
This will group all trips under the contract and send them in one or two batches.
You do not need to specify the price payable for each trip made: the total consideration payable for the trips made must be shown on the bill.
If you make a trip under a contract, the bill must include a reference to the contract (such as a contract number or the customer's name), the number of trips included in the contract and the date of the last service rendered.
The contract rate (“Tarif fixe par contrat” or “Tarif fixe c.”) billing applies for all types of contracts, whether trips are made in traditional taxis or limousines. However, if you make a trip within the paratransit or public transit service, only use “Transport adapté” or “Transport collectif.”
If you know all the prescribed information that must appear on the bill at the time the contract is concluded and that the full trip fare is paid or charged to the customer's account at that time, you must send us the prescribed information. In this case, the transaction is a closing receipt.
If you don't know all the prescribed information that must appear on the bill at the time the contract is concluded, you must first send us the information known at that time. In this case, the transaction is either a temporary bill or an estimate.
You must send us a closing receipt afterward with all the prescribed information that you do know.
If the contract provides for billing periods, the information must be sent at the start and end of each period rather than at the start and end of the contract.
Here are some sample bills containing the prescribed information for contract rate (“Tarif fixe par contrat”) billing.
