- Feb 20, 2020 | Richard Asquith
Canada’s British Colombia is set to become the latest province to impose its state Provincial Sales Tax (PST) on non-resident providers of electronic or digital services. This will include telecommunications services. This follows Saskatchewan and Quebec.
The 7% PST will be levied from 1 July 2020. It will apply to resident and non-resident providers of e-services to local consumers. There will be a VAT registration threshold of CAN$ 10,000 per annum.
In addition to PST, all Canadian provinces must level the federal Goods & Services Tax of 5%. However, Canada does not levy GST on e-services.
In addition to electronic services, PST will also be charged on vapour smoking products at the same time.
