Canadian taxes

A new way of setting up Canadian taxes launched in January 2019. If you see a message to update your Canadian tax settings on your Taxes page, then you can update to the new way:

If you charge sales taxes, then Shopify automatically sets the tax rates that apply in Canada. You can set up tax overrides for products that have special tax rates.

Shopify helps to simplify the procedures for charging sales taxes, but Shopify doesn't remit or file your taxes for you. We're able to help you make sure that you have the right settings for your business, once you know where you're responsible for charging taxes. It's your responsibility to check with the Canadian and provincial tax agencies or a tax professional to make sure that you charge your customers the correct sales tax rates, and to make sure you file and remit your taxes correctly.

For a summary of Canadian tax rules, see Canadian taxes reference.
