    I am new to this forum. I have a quick question regarding hst when subcontracting. I have never subcontracted when plowing. I Just put a new plow on my truck and I recieved a really good offer to sub contract that i think im going to take. I have a registered business and hst number that I had to set up for a construction job that i was subcontracting. When I billed the contractor in construction job I would charge Hst on top of my hourly rate. Is this the same when subcontracting snow removal?

    shorter version is if i am subcontracting for $XX.XX/hr do I bill for $XX.XX/hr plus hst?
