Out-of-Town Car Buying Experience at Ken Shaw Lexus in Toronto, Ontario


Put simply, if delivery takes place in Ontario, then 13% HST will apply to the sale, regardless of where the customer lives.

If a delivery takes place outside of Ontario, the Federal Tax (i.e. HST or GST) applicable to that province will be charged.

Delivery takes place where the customer is considered to take possession of the vehicle.

  • If the customer picks the vehicle up in Ontario and drives it home, delivery takes place in Ontario
  • If the vehicle is shipped out-of-province with the buyer shown as consignor on the bill of lading, delivery takes place in Ontario.
  • If the vehicle is shipped out of province with the selling dealer shown as consignor on the bill of lading, then delivery takes place in the destination province.
  • 13% HST will be collected on any shipping charges for which the dealer separately invoices the customer.

Out-of-province purchasers from non-HST provinces and territories may apply for a refund of the 8% provincial portion of the HST paid in Ontario from Canada Revenue Agency, once they have registered the vehicle in their home province and paid any applicable provincial taxes.
