"Oh, Canada!" How to Manage Sales Tax for Canadian Transactions Webinar

March 27, 2018 / 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. EST (Eastern Time Zone)

Doing any business in the Land of Maple?

You’re not alone.

Many U.S. companies have expanded their footprint to the North. It is a smart business move and e-commerce makes it easier than ever.

But that means you also need to understand how Canada’s tax system differs from the U.S. sales and use tax system.

“I enjoyed the program. I like being able to ask questions and have them answered.” Douglas Deihm, Trout, Ebersole & Groff LLP

There are many differences from U.S. taxes, and it’s easy to get tripped up if you aren’t well-versed in the Canadian tax structure. Rather than sales tax and use tax, Canada has a federal value added tax system (GST/HST), a provincial value added tax (QST) as well as the more traditional retail sales tax (PST). And the taxation rules can vary from province to province - much like how they differ from state to state in the U.S.A.

If your company is currently doing business in Canada or is planning on doing business there, you need to understand the potential implications this may have to your organizations and your potential obligation to register and charge the tax in respect to your Canadian transactions.

And much like the U.S. sales tax system, Canada’s tax landscape is constantly changing. In order to stay compliant, you need to be aware of significant recent developments and the impact they may have on your business operations. By doing this, you can proactively manage your risk when it comes to Canadian sales tax obligations.
