I am extremely confused and have not had any luck getting through to Shopify. No more telephone service? Online chat? Please help somebody.
I newly opened a store. I make less than $30,000.00 so have been told that I do not collect GST. However, I do collect 7% PST on sales made in BC.
However, I had a few sales in Ontario and $0 tax was collected. I had been told by a Shopify expert that I do not need to collect taxes for other provinces, but then I read this article: https://www.thebalancesmb.com/charging-provincial-sales-taxes-on-online-sales-2948448.
Can someone tell me exactly what numbers/percentages to key into Shopify? Again, I am sooooooo confused and not a math person at all. This is causing me alot of strife. This feels way too complicated for me, can someone make it easy?
Also, I have never remitted tax before. So what does that look like? How will I be paying the taxes I've collected to the proper provincial government? And how do I collect PST when certain provinces charge HST instead? And I'm moving to Ontario in late July. What do I do then? How do I make everything line up with Ontario?
Please help! I'm desperate!
