Contractor services are currently exempt from RST in Ontario. Contractor fees will be subject to HST under the HST system, resulting in an 8% increase in the overall payment for such services. This rise should not be a problem for business clients that are eligible for HST input tax credits. However, it will result in higher costs for consumers and firms that are not eligible for input tax credits.

Although RST does not directly apply to landscape projects, RST on landscaping supplies is a cost to the contractor and is factored into the contractor’s pricing. With the elimination of RST and the implementation of HST, the contractor will be able to recover all HST by claiming an input tax credit in the GST/HST return, lowering total expenses.

Offering discounts as a landscaper can have varied effects on your overall profit. While they can attract more customers and foster loyalty, thereby potentially increasing your sales volume, they can also reduce your profit margins and potentially devalue your services. It is crucial to strike a balanced approach to discounting, ensuring it aligns with your financial strategy to maintain healthy profitability. 

As a landscaper, collaborating with an accounting firm can aid in crafting a discount strategy that is both attractive to customers and financially sustainable for your business, helping to optimize your pricing strategy and maintain a positive brand perception. Leveraging professional accounting insights can steer you away from the pitfalls of improper discounting and guide you towards a strategy that bolsters your business growth.
