Is there anybody familiar with canadian taxation?


Recommended Posts

My store sell flowers and gifts to Canadian who want to buy flowers or gifts for their friends in China. So let's say, the delivery address is in China. My question is should I charge sales tax on the customer? According to rules I learned from somewhere, if the customer is outside of Canada, they don't need to pay for tax. But how to distinguish if the customer in Canada? One of my friend said it depends on the delivery address. So in my case, I don't need to charge the customer any tax. Is that true? Or can somebody tell me how'd the taxation rules work?

According to Canada Post, if the total shipping is over $5 and leaving the country, they do not charge tax (GST)


For sales outside of your own province, you wouldn't charge PST either.


So I would say someone outside the country making a purchase would not pay either GST or PST on the product or the shipping.


Someone in your province would pay both on product and shipping and someone outside your province but in Canada would pay just GST.
