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.

Who should attend? This webinar is intended for financial and operations personnel—including those in the tax, general accounting, accounts payable, sales, tax technology, purchasing and credit area—who deal with Canadian sales taxes as part of their responsibilities. The course is also designed for general practitioners, with some experience and exposure to Canadian sales taxes.

Additional Details About the "Oh, Canada" Webinar

About the Webinar

There are many differences between U.S. taxes and Canadian tax. It’s easy to get tripped up if you aren’t well-versed in the Canadian tax structure. 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.
