we are a Canadian company. If we sell products across Canada through Shopify, do we have to register in every province for provincial sale tax?

When it comes to sales tax in Canada, it's important to understand the rules and regulations for each province. While I'm not a tax expert, I can provide some general information.
In Canada, businesses are generally required to register and collect sales tax in the provinces where they have a significant presence or meet certain sales thresholds. This means that if you sell products across Canada, you may need to register for provincial sales tax in each province where you have customers.
To ensure compliance, I recommend consulting with a tax professional or reaching out to the appropriate provincial tax authorities for specific guidance. They will be able to provide you with accurate information based on your business's circumstances.
Let me know if there's anything else I can assist you with!
I too am a Canadian Spotify customer, according to Intuit (the tax software company), claims you must charge taxes to the province you are selling to. Here's a sample list, follow the link below to Intuit, that I found. Hope this helps.
5% GST and 7% PST
5% GST and 9.975% QST
5% GST and 7% Retail Sales Tax

Thanks for joining the conversation!
It is important to note however, that you are only required to charge sales tax if your business earns more than $30,000 a year. This is also stated in the article.
