Canada - Accounting
Canadian accounting charts and localizations.
When considering taxes to be applied, it is the province where the delivery occurs that matters. Therefore we decided to implement the most common case in the fiscal positions: delivery is the responsibility of the supplier and done at the customer location.
1) You have a customer from another province and you deliver to his location. On the customer, set the fiscal position to his province.
2) You have a customer from another province. However this customer comes to your location with their truck to pick up products. On the customer, do not set any fiscal position.
3) An international supplier doesn’t charge you any tax. Taxes are charged at customs by the customs broker. On the supplier, set the fiscal position to International.
4) An international supplier charge you your provincial tax. They are registered with your provincial government and remit taxes themselves. On the supplier, do not set any fiscal position.
