    Thanks Rob.

    The wording on the CRA website is hard on the eyes... Wasn't sure I was interpreting it correctly.

    The way I read it on the CRA site was that I should be charging HST on all loads that do not cross an international border...

    except... I should not charge HST on loads that cross an international border and are part of a "continuous freight movement"... Meaning, if the load crossed the border being hauled by another carrier either before or after I moved it.

    How about charging brokers?

    If you move a load from somewhere in Ontario to somewhere else in Ontario, do you charge the broker HST?

    not any more they changed it, totals up to 14.975% so it came down from 15% to that lol

    And don't forget the QST is a tax on a tax.. you take your rate, add the GST to it and then add the QST on top of that..

    within Canada you simply need to charge the tax of the destination province, ON to QC 5%, QC to ON 13%

    but be careful QC to QC ads that 9.975%

    we have a fairly simple sheet to help with that.

    email me and I'll send it to you

    Use proper dispatch software is the easiest way to make sure :)

    For shipments within Canada, you charge the HST applicable to the Province of the destination. I don't have the website at my fingertips, but surely the Revenue Canada site will have that information.

    Is there a specific site I can use?
