British Columbia GST Rebate Calculator

In many cases, purchasers may be eligible to claim a GST Rebate for a portion of the GST they pay on the purchase price or cost of building a new home.

New home buyers can apply for a 36% rebate of the 5% GST applicable to the purchase price to a maximum of $6,300 for homes costing $350,000 or less (before GST).

For new homes priced between $350,000 and $450,000 (before GST), the GST Rebate is reduced proportionately.

New homes priced $450,000 or higher (before GST) are not eligible to receive a GST Rebate.

Use the GST Rebate Calculator to estimate the GST rebate amount the purchaser can expect to receive.
