Eligible corporations are reminded that they have until March 31, 2022 to purchase qualifying machinery and equipment and receive a rebate equal to the British Columbia PST they paid. Under this temporary rebate, corporations must purchase the qualifying goods and pay the PST by March 31, 2022, among other conditions. Note that British Columbia has confirmed that PST invoiced before March 31, 2022, but paid after that date will not qualify for the rebate. Eligible corporations must ensure that the province receives their rebate application by September 30, 2022.

British Columbia first introduced the temporary rebate to help corporations recover financially from COVID-19.
