The HST is now in effect in Ontario. It is applied on most purchases of taxable supplies of goods and services in Ontario at a rate of 13%, consisting of the 5% federal portion and an 8% provincial portion.
Businesses in Ontario that were registered for GST are now required to collect and report the HST according to their previous GST filing frequency.
