Saskatchewan released guidance on provincial sales tax changes

Businesses may be affected by provincial sales tax (PST) changes in Saskatchewan, some of which apply as of 1 April 2022.

Saskatchewan announced several amendments as part of its 2022 provincial budget that include:

  • PST on admission and entertainment charges
  • PST exemption on audiobooks
  • PST credit rating agency services
  • PST exemption on farm equipment and services

As a result of these changes, businesses that provide these types of goods and services may have to meet new PST registration and compliance obligations. The tax authority of Saskatchewan released guidance on these PST changes, including transitional rules in some cases.
