I'm starting a dropshipping business and I currently live in Canada. As long as the business is registered in Canada & my province will I run into any legal/tax issues if my suppliers are from the states?
I'm not planning on selling to people in the states, but I am planning on using American suppliers.

Thanks

    You won't have any problems at all. I only know German (and some European) Tax Laws, but if you keep anything organized there should be nothing to worry about.

    If your business is registered then you're liable to charge HST/GST from a foreign supplier. Therefore , you have to be organized in this case.Usually CRA overlooks businesses that make a net of around $30K per year. But if your gain is more than that make sure that your logs are always updated.

    There will be no taxes of any kind owed to any entity in the United States. You may be liable to collect and remit Canadian taxes to goods shipped to Canadians and will, of course, be subject to any Canadian income taxes. This is question you should get qualified advice on from a Canadian accountant and not people on the Warrior Forum.
