New Brunswick — transitional rules for HST increase

The 2016-17 New Brunswick budget announced an increase in the HST rate from 13% to 15%, effective July 1, 2016. Transitional rules have recently been released to outline how this increase will apply to a number of specific situations. The purpose of these rules is to determine whether the existing 8% provincial component of the HST or the new 10% rate will apply to transactions that straddle the July 1, 2016 implementation date.
