Words and Phrases - "medical prosthesis"
Dr. Brian Hurd Dentistry Professional Corporation v. The Queen, 2017 TCC 142 (Informal Procedure)
Campbell J found that an incorporated orthodontic practice was making a single supply of exempt orthodontic health services rather than (as argued by it) two supplies comprised of a zero-rated supply of medical equipment (the orthodontic appliance) and of exempt orthodontic services (e.g., adjustment and maintenance services). She then rejected obiter the Crown's argument in the alternative that a separarate supply of the orthodontic appliances would not have been zero-rated but, instead, an exempt supply of a "medical...prosthesis" under Sched. V, Pt. II, s. 1 - "institutional health care service" para. (b), stating (at para 44):
…[I]f I had concluded that the Appellant provided multiple supplies, then … the supply of the orthodontic appliance would be zero-rated pursuant to section 11.1 of Schedule VI, Part II of the Act. … [T]he Act has set out the scheme for an orthodontic appliance entirely separate and apart from the provisions that apply to a prosthesis.
