Canadian sellers HST taxes, how to add in?

Have not sold on Hipstamp for years. Now that I have to collect HST from Canadian buyers, how do most of you collect the HST?

I have just figured it out and added in to the total for shipping and advised the buyers of this.

Any suggestions?

Thanks, Gary

  • First of all, are you registered with Canada Revenue Agency to collect GST/HST? If you are not registered do not collect anything until you are registered.
    If you are registered, I believe you can set up tax tables here.
    I find the easiest way to handle the tax is to include it in the price and shipping. There is a simple formula you can use to calculate the tax that CRA will share with you. Just be sure to remit the tax when it is due.
