Newfoundland and Labrador will reinstate the point-of-sale HST book rebate.
This rebate applies to the provincial component of the HST for qualifying printed books, effective January 1, 2018. As a result, suppliers of qualifying printed books in Newfoundland and Labrador will generally be able to provide their customers with a point-of-sale rebate equal to the 10% provincial component of the HST for tax that is paid or becomes payable after 2017.
Earlier in 2017, Newfoundland and Labrador announced it would reinstate the point-of-sale rebate for books after it was recently eliminated.
