Manufacturers' Rebates – Individuals

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Click Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) to see whether the measures adopted by Revenu Québec apply to the information on this page.

Manufacturers may offer rebates on the goods they sell. The GST and QST rules for manufacturers' rebates apply when all three of the following conditions are met:

  • A manufacturer sells taxable goods (excluding zero-rated goods, other than motor vehicles purchased for sale, under the QST system) to a customer entitled to a rebate. 
  • The sale is made either directly by the manufacturer or by another person (such as a retailer). 
  • The customer receives a rebate respecting the goods from the manufacturer, accompanied by a document specifying that a portion of the rebate represents the GST and QST, and the rebate is not associated with a debit or credit note. 

How the GST and QST are applied depends on when the rebate is granted, that is, if the rebate is treated as a separate transaction or as a part of the sales transaction.

Fair. For all.

One vision. Concrete actions.
