Is PTT calculated on assessed value or purchase price?

If the transfer results from an open market transaction, PTT is calculated on the purchase price. If the purchase price is not the fair market value of the property—for reasons such as a related party transfer or an open market price that was determined far in advance of the registration—you may choose to use the assessed value by BC Assessment as the fair market value for the transfer.
