Canada (Saskatchewan)

To comply with Canadian tax laws, Hotmart will begin collecting a tax called PST (Provincial Sales Taxes) in Saskatchewan. PST is a sales tax added to sales made in provinces where it is in force.

 

In Saskatchewan, PST is a 6% local sales tax for individuals that applies to taxable goods and services consumed or used within the province of Saskatchewan. For purchases made by companies, buyers can enter a PST ID, which is a 7-digit numerical document (PST-SK number) that, after being validated, will exempt them from paying the tax. 

 

Subscription plans and other recurring payments contracted by people residing in Saskatchewan prior to the start of tax collection will also be taxed.

  • From the start date of PST collection, recurring charges will have, in addition to federal tax, the addition of 6% deducted from the value of the product.
