GST / HST tax changes

From 1 July 2021, Canada’s GST / HST rules have changed around how tax is applied to online sales from non-resident digital businesses. These changes were implemented as GST / HST was often not being collected on online purchases from non-resident vendors.

Therefore, from 1st July 2021, any foreign suppliers of digital services to consumers based in Canada will be required to register for GST / HST and to collect and remit any tax to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).
