HST question

Hi All,

I couldn't find anything on this, so all my faith in you folks!

If I purchase a new vehicle in Ontario and sell it 2 weeks later to someone in the States, can I get the HST back? Or it is lost forever?

Did anyone do similar transaction? All words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

A.K.

There are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity... Most of them ride V-Stroms.

OK, I'll bite............why would you buy a vehicle and then 2 weeks later sell it to someone in the states. If you are just trying to buy something for someone in the states there are probably easier and cheaper ways for that.

Just curious.......

The car will ship over to Europe. The person is a non-Canadian resident, can't get insurance to drive car down to NY. So I wanted to "buy" it and then lend it to him and later "sell" it. But then he'd be eating the HST.

The car will be trailered down, this way he can claim HST back.

That is true. However to put a Canadian car on the road in Europe is a breeze, to get a US model certified is a major pain.

In Australia, if something is being exported, GST can be claimed back. Does the same apply there?

We can buy a product up to a month before we depart Oz and claim the GST back at Customs at the airport or seaport terminal.
