July 1 is Next Week, Are You Ready for HST in Ontario and B.C.?
- Sales and Use Tax
- June 23, 2010 | Avalara
The sun is finally out in the Pac Northwest, summer is here, we hope.
Another change in climate is about to become the law of the land in the Great White North. But this warm-up has nothing to do with fronts or storms, although it might be the source of some high pressure for vendors who sell items and services in Canada.
Hurricane HST is about to make land in Ontario and B.C., promising sales tax compliance headaches at gusts of over a hundred miles an hour.
We have posted about the HST earlier, and today we really don't have much new to say. Actually, the word today comes from the Canadian Revenue Agency, who has released yet another bulletin related to the HST transition.
The take away? For many vendors, the transition to HST will be anything but a walk on a sunny beach.
