USA E-Retailer Selling Goods to Canadian Residents

by Jack

We are a 100% internet retailer based in the USA.

We are an importer of record via UPS in Mississauga ON. What is the requirement for collecting and submitting PST/HST/GST for products sold in Canada?

Hi Jack,

I have some general information on GST/HST and internet sales inside and outside Canada but it is from a Canadian perspective.

Under bookkeeping resources, I have some information on who specializes in cross border taxes.

He accepts questions on his website. You might want to post your question there.

Another option is to visit Cyndee Todgham Chernaik's blog ( She is a tax lawyer who specializes in GST/HST and international trade law.

David Sherman at is a well respected GST/HST tax lawyer as well.

Sorry I can't be more help.
