GST Calculator – Canada

This calculator helps you calculate the amount of GST/HST and other taxes to be paid on goods and services in a Canadian province/territory. GST rates in Canada vary by province/territory, and you do not need to enter this as it is included based on your location.

Canada GST / HST Calculator

How does this GST Calculator Work?

This GST calculator calculates based on the following key factors:

  • Amount: You need to enter the prices of goods or services for which you want to calculate GST.
  • Selected Province/Territory: Be sure to specify your location by selecting your province or territory from the dropdown list. Different provinces have different GST rates.
  • Calculation Type: You have to choose between the options “Before Tax” and “After Tax”. If “Before Tax” is selected, the calculator adds the GST amount to the input amount. If “After Tax” is selected, the calculator determines the basic amount before GST by dividing the input amount by (1 + GST rate) and then calculates the GST amount based on the basic amount.

The GST amount is calculated based on the GST rate in the selected province/territory, the selected price of products and services, and the calculation type you choose. The calculator shows you the total including/excluding amount, HST, PST, and GST amounts on the results page.

What are 3 Taxes in Canada?

There are three types of taxes in Canada that are applied by region. These are Provincial Sales Tax (PST), Harmonized Sales Tax (HST), and Goods and Service Tax (GST).

  1. Provincial Sales Tax (PST): PST is a retail sales tax levied by the provinces in Canada. Different provinces have different rates, and some provinces combine them with the Goods and Services Tax (GST) to create a Harmonized Sales Tax (HST). Provinces with PST include British Columbia, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan.
  2. Harmonized Sales Tax (HST): Some provinces combine their provincial sales tax with the federal Goods and Services Tax (GST) to create a single harmonized tax. Provinces with an HST include Ontario, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island.
  3. Goods and Services Tax (GST): This is a federal tax that applies to most goods and services in Canada. The GST rate is the same throughout the country. However, some provinces have a separate Provincial Sales Tax (PST) in addition to GST.

GST Threshold in Canada

The Goods and Services Tax (GST) threshold in Canada is $30,000 in taxable sales in 12 months. If the total taxable supplies of a business exceed this limit, they need to register for GST and start collecting and depositing tax. This is the latest update, however, you can check with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) for the latest information.
