Provincial sales tax (PST) is a retail sales tax that applies when a taxable good or service is purchased, acquired or brought into B.C. unless a specific exemption applies.

The PST generally applies to:

Harmonized Sales Tax (HST)

  • the purchase or lease of new and used goods in B.C.
  • goods brought, sent or delivered into B.C. for use in B.C.
  • the purchase of:
    • software
    • services to goods such as vehicle maintenance, furniture assembly, computer repair
    • accommodation
    • legal services
    • telecommunication services, including Internet services and certain digital and electronic media content such as music and movies
  • gifts of vehicles, boats and aircraft

If your business is required to register to collect PST, you must charge and collect PST at the time the tax is payable, unless a specific exemption applies. You report and pay the PST you collect as well as the PST you may owe on items you use in your business.
