What are the Canada VAT Rates?

Canada imposes a Goods and Services Tax (GST) and, in certain provinces, a Harmonized Sales Tax (HST). Unlike a VAT, these taxes are not normally deductible by businesses. Here is Canada’s HST/GST breakdown:

Applies to all goods and services.
Depending on the province, the rate varies from 13% to 15%.

The HST is a combined tax structure that includes the federal GST and a provincial sales tax component. It is implemented in the following provinces:
• New Brunswick
• Newfoundland and Labrador
• Nova Scotia
• Ontario
• Prince Edward Island

In provinces where HST is not applied, a separate Provincial Sales Tax (PST) must be paid. Rates vary by province.
