Sales Tax


In Canada, Pink Butterfly Aprons collects sales tax for products ordered on this Website. The rate of sales tax that will apply to an order is dependent on the delivery address of the order. The 5% GST (Goods and Services Tax) is added to all orders in every province except for the following provinces in which the HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) is added to all orders: New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia (15%), Ontario (13%), and Prince Edward Island (14%). In addition, provincial sales tax is added to all orders in the province of Quebec (9.975%), in British Columbia (7%), in Manitoba (8%), and in Saskatchewan (6%). Tax exemptions for books, children’s clothing, and food are also calculated according to existing provincial rules. The sale of a gift card is not taxable. When a gift card is used to pay for a purchase, it is treated as a payment method similar to cash. Therefore, sales taxes must be calculated on the price of each item sold before the value of the gift card is deducted.
