After phones calls and reading site after site, I have discovered another interesting point when it comes to paying taxes on your order. Everything that I have mentioned in a previous post about paying taxes is all correct; the only thing that will make a difference is the final destination of your order.
Regardless of where you are located (the province of which you reside), ultimately in the end, the tax you pay on your order is solely based on the location of where the goods end up.
- Example: If you reside in Quebec and have placed an order from a business that is located in British Columbia, but the shipment is being sent to Ontario, you are required to pay taxes based on Ontario (which is 13% HST).
Pretty straight forward and completely understandable; so make sure you are being charged the correct amount, which will make your accountants life much easier.
