I live in Canada and I plan to drop-ship mainly to Canada and the United States. What are the rules regarding taxes? Do I charge Alberta taxes for everyone? Do I charge the taxes of each province and state? How does this work?

Hello watain,

How you charge taxes will depend on how you incorporate your business, whether you incorporate it provincially or federally. It's a bit complicated but I think you'll find our Link hidden: Login to view helpful.

Also, I've answered a few questions regarding Canadian taxes and importing duties on this post - Link hidden: Login to view

It is still best to seek professional help from an accountant should things get too complicated for you.

Hope this helps :)
