TAX

While we do not profess to be tax specialists there are CRA (Canada Revenue Agency) tax provisions and regulations from which our fleet of owners currently enjoys significant benefits.

HST

The HST paid on the purchase of an asset whose purpose is to generate income is refundable to the business as an input tax credit.

The 13% HST paid on the purchase of your motor home can be refunded to you as an ITC (Input Tax Credit).

HST tax received from the rentals of a motor home by operating company is paid to the motor home owner who then remits it to CRA.

Income Tax

Income generated from rental income can be reduced by normal operating expense to establish taxable income. These expenses include interest on financing, insurance, license costs and depreciation.
For example:

Rental Income 30' motor home $11,988
Less: Interest on loan -5,483
Commercial Insurance -2,300
License plates -100
Sub-total $4,105
Less Depreciation  
$80,000 x 30%  
(15% in year of acquisition) = $9,600  
Allowable deduction -4,105
(Deduction may not exceed income)  
Taxable Income 0.00
