Some new tax rules took effect in Canada on July 1 – and some non-resident businesses will need to take note. The good news is that a tool exists to help determine if your business is among those affected.
As we posted earlier, non-resident vendors of cross-border digital services and products (including some accommodation platforms) that sell to Canadian customers must register with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and charge and remit GST/HST if their total taxable product are CAD $30,000 or more in a twelve-month period. Tax rules can be confusing and stressful, but thankfully there’s a tool to help.
Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP has created an online tax diagnostic tool to help non-resident businesses determine what their tax obligations might be under the new rules. Information about the tool can be found here. And of course, keep reading our blog for more relevant updates.
