British Columbia to restructure centralised medtech purchasing body

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Canada's British Columbia is to incorporate its Shares Services Organization, which provides bulk purchasing and IT services, under another existing healthcare agency. The move will help avert a Can$3.5m (US$3.4m) tax bill that will apply under the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) regime, which comes into effect on 1 July. The provincial sales tax (PST) will be eliminated and, in British Columbia specifically, a 7% rate will be added to the 5% Goods and Services Tax (GST), resulting in a combined HST of 12%. Similar arrangements in Ontario will result in a combined HST of 13%.
