PST Equals Reduced Taxes on Software Training

British Columbians said goodbye to the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) yesterday.

Therefore, all invoices issued on or after April 1, 2013 will no longer include 12% HST. All of our training and consulting services will be subject to 5% GST.

The only exception will be our eLearning services – which will also include 7% PST (for a total of 12% tax). Course Manuals (if billed separately) are considered “books” so are not subject to PST.

What if I’m purchasing Sector Learning Solutions from out of province?
Invoices issued to clients in other Provinces will reflect the GST/HST/PST applicable in that Province.

Province Type GST Rate PST Rate Total Tax Rate
Alberta GST 5% 0% 5%
British Columbia GST + PST 5% 7% 12%
Manitoba GST + PST 5% 7% 12%
New Brunswick HST 5% 8% 13%
Newfoundland and Labrador HST 5% 8% 13%
Northwest Territories GST 5% 0% 5%
Nova Scotia HST 5% 10% 15%
Nunavut GST 5% 0% 5%
Ontario HST 5% 8% 13%
Prince Edward Island HST 5% 9% 14%
Quebec GST + QST 5% 9.975% 14.975%
