Core charges and GST/HST

We have received a number of questions from members in regards to how GST/HST is applied to core charges for automotive parts sold by vendors who are GST/HST registrants.

AIA reached out to the Ministry of National Revenue to request their support. As a result, the Canada Revenue Agency department that deals with the application of GST/HST has offered to respond to the questions submitted by our members.

Based on interest, we may choose to proceed with a conference call to give members the opportunity to connect directly with government personnel (while remaining anonymous). Also, all those submitting questions will remain anonymous.

To take advantage of this opportunity, please send any questions you have about core charges to Erin Chreptyk at
