Corporate Income Tax in British Columbia

For businesses operating in British Columbia, corporate income tax is a key consideration. The corporate income tax rate in the province is typically higher than personal income tax rates. As of our last update, the provincial corporate income tax rate stood at 12%, but it’s essential to check for any changes in rates since then.

Sales Tax: GST and PST

British Columbia follows a dual sales tax system, consisting of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and the Provincial Sales Tax (PST).


The GST is a federal tax applicable across Canada. As of our last update, the GST rate was 5%.



The PST is a provincial tax imposed on the retail sale or rental of taxable goods and services. The PST rate may vary for different types of goods and services.

Property Tax in British Columbia

Property tax is a significant source of revenue for local governments in British Columbia. Property owners are responsible for paying property taxes, which fund essential services such as schools and public safety. The property tax rate can vary from one municipality to another and depends on factors such as property value and usage. Property assessments are typically conducted by the British Columbia Assessment Authority.

Other Taxes and Considerations

British Columbia may have additional taxes and levies, such as the Speculation and Vacancy Tax, which applies to certain vacant residential properties. Additionally, the province has introduced measures to address issues like the foreign buyers' tax to stabilize the housing market.
