GST/HST sales tax - Canada

Hi, I am planning to upload mobile apps for sell in Amazon. I am not sure how GST/HST sales tax works in Amazon app store. Are you going to charge user GST/HST sales tax and pass it to me and then I'll pass to CRA. Or are you doing the collection for CRA?


Thanks.

Hi,

Thanks for your question.

Amazon is responsible for collecting and remitting any taxes imposed on its sales of Apps to end users. You are responsible for any income or other taxes due and payable resulting from Amazon's payments to you.

For further information, please see this documentation:

Hi, thank you for your answer. So if I am Canadian resident, Amazon will charge my Canadian users with HST/GST tax?


Thanks

Hi,

I can confirm that Amazon is responsible for collecting and remitting any taxes imposed on its sales of Apps to end users. You may be required to report and pay taxes to your own government, but we are not involved in this process.

I'm in a similar position. Did you figure out how to handle this? @NewUser-98adf62f-410f-4f69-bb1c-a9ef7a0f4e96
