Formula for calculating GST and PST in MB

Amount without sales taxes x (GST rate/100) = Amount of GST in MB
Amount without sales taxes x (PST rate/100) = Amount of PST in MB
Amount without sales tax + GST amount + PST amount = Total amount with sales tax


20$ x (5/100) = 1$ (GST)
20$ x (7/100) = 1.40$ (GST)
20$ + 1$ + 1.40$ = 22.40$


Retail Sales Tax

Residing in the province of Manitoba and also run a business there, then this little guide is just for you. If you run your retail business in any of these provinces- British Columbia, Manitoba, Saskatchewan or Quebec, then you must charge provincial sales tax (PST) on all items sold⁠, unless exempt⁠, in addition to the federal charges or the Goods and Services Tax(GST).

There are other provinces that have come down to a consolidated tax rather than charging two different kinds of taxes in the form of Harmonized Sales Tax or HST. However, Manitoba, unlike the other provinces, still has not incorporated the PST in GST.

In Manitoba, provincial sales tax is called retail sales tax (RST) and is charged at a rate of 8%.The Retail Sales Tax (RST) is a tax applied to the retail sale or rental of most goods and certain services in Manitoba.  The tax is calculated on the selling price, before the GST (Good and Services Tax) is applied

Unless exempted, RST must be charged on all goods and services that are consumed in the province of Manitoba. A very effective and simple calculator can further help you in making the calculations a cakewalk.

The general sales tax rate is 7%.
