BC PST Rate Increases to 20%

BC PST Rate Increases to 20%

Starting on January 1st, the rate of PST (only in British Columbia) on vapour products increases from 7% to 20%.


Another part of this tax hike is that GST will be charged on the subtotal and PST.


For example:


Subtotal
$100.00
PST (20%)
$20.00
Total
$120.00
GST (5%)$6.00
Grand Total
$126.00


Another way to look at it is:


Subtotal
$100.00
PST (20%)
$20.00
GST (6%)$6.00
Grand Total
$126.00


Compare this to the old tax rate:


Subtotal
$100.00
PST (7%)
$7.00
GST (5%)$5.00
Grand Total
$112.00


Effectively, the total tax rate jumps from 12% to 26%.


This tax hike is part of the British Columbia government's plan to reduce youth uptake of vaping products. 


All DashVapes purchases with a final destination in British Columbia only will see the change of this tax rate. All other provinces remain unaffected.
