Requirement to provide GST/HST registration numbers to non-resident suppliers, platform operators

Non-resident businesses and platform operators are requesting GST/HST and QST registration numbers from customers in Canada.

Businesses in Canada need to be prepared to provide their GST/HST and QST* registration numbers to satisfy requests from their non-resident suppliers.

Under new GST/HST rules (effective 1 July 2021), businesses in Canada that do not provide their GST/HST registration number may be liable for GST/HST to non-resident businesses and platform operators. Further, businesses may not be able to claim input tax credits (ITC) for these taxes under a new specified GST/HST registration system.
