v2004/e                                                                                                  5
                                             TYPES OF SUPPLIES
                                             APPLYING TO A SALE
The following information comes from the publication: General Information Concerning the QST and the
GST/HST, published by the Ministère du Revenu du Québec (IN-203-V) and is available at the Ministère du
Revenu du Québec offices and on the web at www.revenu.gouv.qc.ca. The following is provided for information
purposes only and does not constitute a legal interpretation of any fiscal statutes or regulations (Taxes).

There are three types of supplies—taxable, zero-rated and exempt—that apply to both the GST and QST
systems. When you carry out a transaction, it is important to determine what type of supply you are making so
that you will know whether you must collect GST and QST and if you are entitled to Input tax credit (ITCs) and
Input tax refund (ITRs).

Taxable supplies are supplies of property and services that are made in the course of commercial activities and
that are subject to GST or QST. Registrants that acquire taxable supplies of property or services in the course of
their commercial activities may be entitled to an ITC or an ITR.

Taxable supplies include the following:

• tools sold to a business specialized in the repair of small motors, as well as lawnmowers sold by the business;
• baking moulds sold to a bakery, as well as chocolates sold by the business;
• computers sold to a law firm, as well as legal services provided by the firm;
• sales of commercial buildings and newly constructed residential complexes;
• rentals of commercial buildings;
• automobile sales and rentals;
• sales of gasoline and automobile repair services;
• sales of soft drinks, candy and potato chips;
• sales of clothing and footwear;
• rental of hotel accommodations;
• provision of barber and hairstylist services.

If you make zero-rated supplies, you are not required to collect GST or QST because such supplies are taxable
at 0%. However, you may be entitled to an ITC or ITR with respect to taxable supplies acquired to make zero-
rated supplies. Recipients of a zero-rated supply of property or a service are not entitled to an ITC or ITR,
because they did not pay GST or QST on the supply.

Zero-rated supplies include the following:

• sales of prescription drugs;
• sales of medical devices;
• sales of basic groceries;
• sales of certain property in the farming and fishing sectors;
• sales of certain property or services exported outside Canada (or shipped outside Quebec, for QST purposes);
• provision of certain passenger or freight transportation services;
• provision of financial services and sales of printed books (under the QST system only).

You do not collect or pay GST or QST on exempt supplies of property and services because such supplies are
not subject to the taxes. Accordingly, you may not claim ITCs or ITRs with respect to purchases made in order to
make exempt supplies. However, certain public service bodies may, regardless of whether they are GST and
QST registrants, claim rebates (partial refunds) under both the GST and the QST systems with respect to their
exempt supplies.

Exempt supplies include the following:

             sales of residential complexes that are not new;
             provision of most health, education, child-care and legal-aid services;
             provision of certain services provided by public sector bodies such as governments, non-
              profit organizations, charities, municipalities, hospital and school authorities, public
              colleges and universities;
             provision of financial services (under the GST system only).
