Default Buying new car in another province?

Alright, well before I posted about buying a new Spec-V, or a used Impreza. I have decided on getting the Spec-V, but I"ll still post my questions here since you guys seem smarter than the other forums I go to.

I have come across a deal in another provice to get the car for 1200 off MSRP. here, I don't get anything off except free winter steelies and tint.

But, that province has an extra 7% PST. Is there any such thing where the PST is refunded if the car is for anothe province, or am I just wishfully thinking?

Also, any other complications with changing provinces?

If I HAVE to pay the extra 7% PST, then the deal evens out, and I might as well buy it for MSRP here.

Check with your local Ministry of Transportation.

In Ontario, PST is payed only upon registration. If you can somehow get a temporary plate and transport the car (after purchase) to your province, perhaps that might provide an alternative.

I don't know about laws governing dealerships, usually they try to register the car for you and therefore pay the PST.

Good luck.

You might have to pay the PST, but then claim it back if you register the car in your province.

Which province are you from???

Here in Ottawa, if we buy a car in Gatineau or Hull, usually the dealer get the car registered for us at the Ministry of Transport (Ontario).... and we pay both the PST (8% for Ont. and 7% for GST).....

If we bought a car in Montreal, it would be a different story..... I would pay only the GST but then I'd pay the PST when I get the car registered at the Ontario ministry..... I would need a temporary quebec licence (10 day permit) to drive it home though...

Out of province, you shouldn't have to pay their PST but GST is taxed....

Consult with your local Ministry of Transportation office..... Usually you can get the info online also.....

Here's a good link for the provinces:

Thanks guys. I am checking out that homepage right now, if I don't find anything, I'll make some calls tomorrow.

I am in Alberta (whoo no PST!) and the other province is Manitoba.
