GST/HST
 


How it works

On July 1st the Provincial Sales Tax (PST) will be eliminated. A 7% B.C. rate will be added to the 5% Goods and Services Tax (GST) forming a combined HST of 12%.

If you buy a newly built home, you’ll get an HST rebate .

On average, the rebate ensures that you won’t pay any additional tax due to harmonization on new homes that cost up to $525,000. If you buy a new home that costs more than that, you’ll pay a little bit more tax than you did before, but you’ll still get the maximum rebate of $26,250.

To see how much your rebate will be and to compare how much you would pay in tax before and after July 1 st, use theNew Home HST Calculator.

See this video for a good explanation of the impact of hidden PST on the cost of building a home (also available inCantonese, Mandarin and Punjabi translations).
