E-Commerce: Suppliers Outside Canada Now Collecting QST
A new measure that came into effect on January 1, 2019, has resulted in new Québec sales tax (QST) obligations for foreign businesses and operators of digital platforms for the distribution of property or services. Since they are now required to collect and remit QST on taxable sales of incorporeal movable property and services to individuals in Québec who are not registered for the QST, they must now charge QST on their online sales.
A major step toward tax fairness!
