How Can I Find Out If My Beverage Container Is Taxable?
The refundable portion of the deposit on a beverage container is excluded from the tax base while the other portion that is not refunded to the consumer is subject to tax on the same basis as the beverage.
Information on how the GST/GST applies to beverages is available in the following info sheet from the Canada Revenue Agency: Beverages GST/HST Info Sheet.
How Should I Label My Beverage Containers?
The Beverage Container Program has guidelines for distributors regarding the labelling of beverage containers. These guidelines can be found on the New Brunswick Beverage Containers Program web page. A link to these guidelines is also provided via our web page “Registering & Selling Beverage Products in New Brunswick“.
