Any Canadian's here?

I’ve got someone asking me to look at their invoices and they live in CA.

  • Their invoice shows “Tax” being charged
  • I reply that makes it Retail, not wholesale
  • They are trying to say that this is standard, unlike in the states where we don’t charge Tax to resellers

I believe I’m right, but want to confirm my position.

From the Business Development Bank of Canada’s site:

“Selling wholesale to another business does not exempt you from charging HST/GST . It is the responsibility of your customer to claim an input tax credit on their purchases.”

There are exceptions such as sales to a government entity, etc.
