A tax table for Canadian GST/HST payments. Actual tax calculations are left as an exercise for the reader. Please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sales_taxes_in_Canada for a more detailed explanation of how GST and HST works (it's not as simple as one might hope).
Creates and returns a new Business::CA::GST object.
my $tax = Business::CA::GST->new();
buyer_region => $region_code
You may pass this parameter to new(), and/or you may use the buyer_region() method after having created the object. See the buyer_region() documentation below for a list of allowable region codes.
my $tax = Business::CA::GST->new( buyer_region => $region_code );
The only required parameter. Must be one of:
AB, BC, MB, NB, NL, NS, NT, ON, PE, SK, QC, YT, NU
Returns the GST/HST as a floating point number. eg 13% is returned as 0.13
Returns either 'GST' or 'HST'
