Is HST charged on the sale of stocks?



Our response:

HST does not get charged on trades (investments). It does get charged on portfolio advisory fees, since this is considered a service. Review your client account agreement with the registered advisor or firm where your account is held, for details about taxes charged on advisory fees.
