Does Printify charge tax on local sales in Canada?
Starting April 2022, Printify is introducing tax charges on sales in Canada. All items printed and shipped within Canadian borders will be subject to local taxes. The applicable tax rate depends on the order’s “ship to” address in Canada.
Generally, all items in the Printify catalog are subject to Canadian taxes. Some products may be exempt from provincial sales taxes, based on their category. The shipping fee is also taxable and subject to the same tax rate as the rest of the order.
If you’re a registered taxpayer in some provinces, you can receive an exemption by providing your tax details to Printify. In other cases, you’ll be able to reclaim the taxes via tax returns if you’re a registered taxpayer in Canada.
Starting from November 2022, Printify will offer merchants greater flexibility by allowing to choose between two types of invoice frequency and format:
- An individual invoice issued for each Printify order, or
- A monthly summary invoice
Regardless of the invoice format, your invoices will contain the full cost and tax information for your orders, allowing you to use this information for your tax returns if needed.
