Why do electric parts and equipment have to “sell separately”?
This is because the parts and the appliances must be sold as separate goods or serviceable goods.
It’s important to know how the parts are classified, as the sale of a serviceable part can result in a separate tax charge on the customer.
It is also important to understand how the tax applies to separate charges, which is the case if the appliances are sold together.
If the appliance is sold separately, the tax is charged on the amount paid for the appliance, not the amount used to cover the tax.
It may be important to remember that the tax can vary depending on where the appliance and parts are sold.
For example, some electrical appliances are subject to a sales tax if sold in the United States.
This applies to parts sold by dealers, but not to those sold by a consumer.
Sales tax is not paid on the cost of shipping the appliances.
This may result in higher tax bills for consumers.
Some electric appliances sold in Canada are not subject to sales tax.
They are sold as part of a new electric or hybrid vehicle, but are not taxed when sold as a complete vehicle.
This is why some customers may be able to save some money by selling a new car with the electric engine.
This does not apply to parts and other services sold by an electric appliance retailer.
If a customer purchases an electric heater, it is sold as the heater is manufactured in Canada, but the parts must be imported and then assembled in the U.S. It can be difficult to determine whether an electric heating system is an electric or non-electric appliance.
Some parts are eligible for sales tax even though they are not part of the electric system.
For instance, parts for a refrigerator, freezer and freezer storage unit can be exempt from sales tax when they are manufactured in the USA.
Some types of refrigerators and freezer units are not exempt from the tax because they are designed to store food and beverages, not to produce electricity.
Some appliance stores sell electric appliances in the US.
If you purchase an electric refrigerator, it must be installed in Canada or the U, and the manufacturer must register the appliance with the Canadian tax authority.
If it’s not registered, you may be subject to the Canadian sales tax on the electric portion of the bill.
If an appliance is not sold in a province, the manufacturer will be required to register it.
This can be costly.
You should consult an electrician before making a decision about the electric part of your electric appliance.
It might be worth consulting an electric service or repair technician before making the purchase.
If your electric appliances are not covered by a sales-tax exemption, you should contact the electrical supply or installation company to verify if they are covered by the exemption.
