Course Description

Course Description

The Canadian sales tax landscape has changed significantly in the past two years.

If you or your clients make sales in Canada, there is a high likelihood that sales tax registration and compliance are required. New rules came into force on July 1, 2021, that will significantly impact non-resident vendors and online platform operators. Non-residents selling into Canada are especially at risk under the new rules.

What are these new rules?

Specifically, the changes require certain non-resident vendors and operators of online platforms to register for, collect, and remit goods and services tax (GST)/harmonized sales tax (HST) on:

  • Sales of digital products and services provided to Canadian customers;
  • Goods supplied through fulfillment warehouses located in Canada and made by non-resident vendors directly through websites; and
  • Supplies are made via short-term accommodation platforms.
