GST Applicable on the Sale of Short Term Rentals
FYI - if you are selling a property that has been used for nightly rentals GST may be applicable on the sale of the property due to the commercial nature of short term rentals (even on a percentage use basis if you are renting only a room or two instead of your whole house). If the owner's short term rental income exceeds $30,000 they are required to become a GST registrant. If the Seller has claimed input tax credits than CRA will require GST be charged and remitted on the sale of the property.
