Happy Canada Day Everyone

June 30, 2006


July 1st is Canada Day in….well…Canada. 

As you likely know, it’s six Canadians who run FreshBooks.  So…on behalf of all of us, play safe and have a great weekend.  We won’t be available Monday – we’re taking the day off (it’s a national holiday here) to enjoy the great weather we’ve been having and reward ourselves for all the hard work we do for you – our users.

For those of you who are Canadian FreshBooks users (that’s about 10% everyone), don’t forget to change your GST rate to 6% from 7%.  Levi and Daniel spent today adjusting our recurring charges to all our Canadian users.  So if you are Canadian, you’ll be getting a 1% discount from here on in – or at least it might seem that way 🙂

Again, have a great weekend.
