BDO service package helps auto dealers with new luxury tax

October 06, 2022

Canada’s new luxury tax will take effect on September 1, 2022. After this, automobile dealers will be required to pay luxury tax on sales of subject vehicles where the sale price, including improvements, exceeds $100,000. Learn more about what Canada’s new luxury tax means for auto dealers.

The luxury tax is generally a tax on dealers rather than purchasers. And dealers should prepare by building their luxury tax cost into the sale price of subject vehicles.
