Tax Obligations of Moving Companies
If you use the services of a moving company, you are entitled to request an invoice.
The GST/HST and the QST apply to a supply of moving services. The amounts of tax collected by suppliers of moving services must be remitted to us. As a result, a supplier of moving services is required to be registered with Revenu Québec. Note that a business that is considered a small supplier (that is, a business whose total annual taxable sales do not exceed $30,000) is not required to register for the GST and the QST or to collect and remit these tax amounts if the operator of the business has chosen not to register.
To help foster voluntary respect of tax obligations, ask the company with which you are doing business for its QST registration number. You can then use the Validate a QST Registration Number online service to ensure the number is valid.
