An invoice is sent in Welcome package (with payment options) and then in early June on subsequent years to the address on file.
- If the transaction involves an Undeveloped Lot, the Basic Fee is not payable until the home being built has been substantially completed. The purchaser must arrange to have the VA notified of substantial completion and have the plans delivered to the VA office so that the square footage can be calculated for determining the Basic Fee.
Rental Royalty Fee aka Village Amenity Fee (VAF) Payable to BMVA
- The Village Amenity Fee (VAF) is a mandatory charge directly to guests of 2% plus HST on all lodging rentals in all Blue Mountain Village Association members units.
- The Blue Mountain Resort Lodging program remits the full 2% Rental Royalty Fee VAF to BMVA on behalf of both parties. If a suite is part of the Blue Mountain Resort Lodging program, it is the responsibility of the owner to pay 1% and Blue Mountain Resort to pay 1% of all revenue generated from the rental of the unit.
- If a suite is not in any rental program but rented privately; it is the responsibility of the owner to collect and remit the full 2% plus HST to the BMVA on a monthly basis charged to the rental guest. An adminstrative fee of $500.00 plus H.S.T. will be charged on members accounts who are found on self-renting sites or advertisements who are not disclosing the gross rentals and paying the Village Amenity Fee in a timely manner according to section 12 of the General By-Law.
