Do I have to collect Canadian GST?


J

John Levine

An organization in Ontario wants me to come up and teach a one day
class to its staff. I live and work in New York, so I'd drive up the
night before, teach the class, and come home. Do I have to charge and
remit GST (actually HST?)

Looking at the CRA web site, it appears that I'd be a "small supplier"
since they would pay me a lot less than the $30K threshold. Is that
right, or am I missing something?

It wouldn't be the end of the world to register for GST, and I suppose
I could reclaim the HST on the hotel, about $20. But it's a hassle
I'd rather avoid if I can.

If your gross income from the business is less than $30,000 CDN in the
current and previous three quarters, then you are a small supplier.
However, I believe they include your US sales in that gross income
test. Why not call the CRA at International Tax Services office for an
answer? See this link http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/cntct/international-eng.html
