Value-Added Taxation in Canada is an in-depth analysis of the Goods and Services Tax, its harmonized counterpart currently applicable in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Ontario, and British Columbia, and the Quebec Sales Tax. The book combines both practical and theoretical issues, with emphasis on practical applications for private and public sector taxpayers. The authors have integrated the impact of the three taxes (GST, HST, and QST) on each topical area. These taxes are extensively referenced throughout the book, providing insight into the legislation and administrative policy at both the federal and provincial levels. In addition, the format is designed to accommodate the further harmonization of other jurisdictions in Canada.
This edition has been updated to reflect the legislation, regulations, government policies, and proposed amendments up to January 1, 2011.
