What is HST?

Some provinces have chosen to participate in the HST, which pairs the GST with the PST to create one tax overall. These regions include New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Labrador, and Ontario. Therefore, if your small business resides in one of these areas, you will collect a HST rate that ranges from 13-15 percent and pay it to the CRA.
