For a business owner in Canada, tax regulations can be daunting, especially for those managing transactions across provinces with varying tax rates and rules. That's why Canadian Mind Products decided to create a solution. Canadian Sales Tax Calculator is free, downloadable software for Windows. The system is constantly updated to ensure safety by reducing chances of malware attacks.

With an emphasis on accuracy, efficiency, and compliance, this software simplifies the complexities of tax calculation. A company can input details regarding transactions or regional information to get precise calculations for GST (Goods and Services Tax), PST (Provincial Sales Tax), and HST (Harmonized Sales Tax). For contrast, if taxes are calculated manually, it might take a lot of time, and there's always room for error. So it's better to get reliable results within a few seconds.


  • Taxes can be calculated based on any present or past dates
  • Available in the English language
  • Java source code and sample HTML code is available
  • Has an old-school, but simple software interface
  • Tax rates and jurisdictions can be customized
  • Canadian Sales Tax Calculator is freeware
  • It can be used on the Windows operating system

The installation process is very simple. You just have to click the download button, and it will start downloading. Then, you can extract the .zip file to start the setup process. Moreover, you don't have to worry about storage issues, as the file size is only 1.05 MB. And even though the software is updated consistently, the company recommends passing it through an antivirus program – especially if the calculator is downloaded from third-party sites.

Once installed, you can add details like date, buyer's province, amount of sale, and other relevant details. The software will incorporate GST, HST, and PST into a base price to find the final cost. However, it can also operate in reverse, allowing users to determine base price and taxes based on final cost. If you are operating a business in Canada, this free tool is a must-have!
