Effective July 1st, Carswell will be required to charge HST on all products and services. Books, including looseleafs, qualify for a point of sale rebate on the OVAT and BCVAT. Therefore, books will only be subject to 5% HST.
Unlike PST, HST may be claimed as an input tax credit (ITC). Please contact your tax advisor to determine your organization’s eligibility to claim HST as an input tax credit with CRA.
Please visit the Ontario Ministry of Revenue at www.rev.gov.on.ca or the British Columbia Ministry of Finance at www.gov.bc.ca/fin.
