If a commercial lease states: ‘All taxes and insurance on the building are the sole responsibility of the Landlord’
does that mean that the Landlord must pay GST on the rent? That is, the rent amount stated in the lease includes GST, which the Landlord must remit to CRA?

1 Thought on Is GST usually included in a commercial rent?

    ‘All taxes and insurance on the building are the sole responsibility of the Landlord’ refers to property taxes on the BUILDING.

    GST on rent is always payable. If the lease does not specifically state it is included in the rent amount, it is added onto the rent amount, collected by the landlord from the tenant, and deposited with CRA.
