Navigating Canada’s Non-Resident Business Requirements

August 19 @ 11:00 am - 11:45 am


Is Your Business Ready for the New Canadian Tax Rules?

If you are a non-resident business looking to conduct business in Canada, the tax systems and legislative requirements can be complex. New tax measures for foreign-based vendors in Canada went into effect on July 1, 2021. The updated goods and services tax (GST)/ harmonized sales tax (HST) collection rules apply to foreign based vendors for Cross-Border Digital Products and Cross-Border services; Goods Supplied through Fulfillment Warehouses; and on Platform-based Short-Term Accommodations. In the USMCA trade agreement, Canada agreed to new de minimis thresholds for customs duties and taxes on imported goods shipped by courier. This new low value shipment program applies to many smaller B2C shippers from Maine.

To help you navigate Canada’s non-resident business requirements, join MITC and Welch LLP, a Chartered Public Accounting firm based in Ottawa Canada, for this live webinar. You will learn about the new requirements, determining non-resident status, business numbers, and small suppliers’ status. Whether you are looking at early-stage market entry or a large-scale expansion in Canada, this webinar is for you.
