GST expenses  rental property 

The GST claim will depend on the type of rental property.

According to section 14(1) (ca) and (cb), the rental income received from a residential dwelling is an exempt supply. This means that GST cannot be charged on rental for residential property. Therefore, the owner is not allowed to claim any GST on residential dwelling expenses spent on the rental property. However, expenses are still deductible for income tax purposes.

For commercial property, GST can still be charged and owner can claim GST on expenses spent on the property.
