At Gesbey, we have seen that numerous organizations bounce straightforwardly into import-export business without sufficient knowledge. Accordingly, they face numerous obstacles in keeping up their financial records and documenting their expenses with the CRA. Each nation has its own arrangement of tax rules related with import-send out business, for example, GST/HST in Canada.
Import-Export organizations may have to enlist for the GST/HST. This implies that:
They need to charge, collect, and remit the GST/HST on the taxable supplies in Canada
They need to file GST/HST returns on a regular basis
They should be able to claim input tax credits (ITCs) to recover the GST/HST paid or payable on the purchases
Importer/exporter are needed to give GST/HST number with solicitations, receipts, and some other documentation needed by them to guarantee input tax reductions (ITCs). Moreover, duplicates of solicitations, receipts and so on should likewise be kept up by the merchant/exporter to guarantee ITCs for the GST/HST paid by them.
