As a successful foreign business, you know what it takes to thrive in your native country. However, if you are considering doing business in Canada, trying to understand a new set of laws and regulations in a foreign country can be challenging and time-consuming. Why spend valuable time deciphering Canada’s complex tax rules, when our commodity tax experts can do it for you.
As the importer of record, your company will be required to pay 5% Goods and Services Tax (“GST”) on most commercial goods your company is importing to Canada. The tax is then collected by Canada Border Services Agents at the time of importation and is indicated on the B3 – Canada Customs Coding form.
Our fees are based on time spent, our standard rates plus any out-of-pocket expenses. We can also discuss fixed fees for specific requirements. They will vary depending on the facts and complexity of each situation. A retainer may be required for first-time clients.
If you would like to discuss any of the above considerations, please don’t hesitate to contact Frederic Pansieri for more information.
