[UPDATE] Addition of Sales Tax When Purchasing NX
maybe im wrong but I don't think companies or vendors get a share of the sales tax it probably goes to just whatever government is collecting it.
When the government collect taxes from companies and vendors, they only need to report their total revenues and they'll collect from the % of that. And each zip code may have a different sales tax rate. Unless the governments in question fulling enforce to collect 100% of the sales tax collected, I'm sure companies and vendors will find a way to keep some of the collection.
But in response to the previous poster, more misinformation that Nexon is doing this for their own gain.
Indeed I vaguely remember getting an email from newegg sometime ago mentioning this
Good people can boycott them too xD
".....Recently, two Canadian provinces, Québec and Saskatchewan, have created an explicit sales tax on digital supplies, or extended the requirements for nonresident vendors to register to collect sales taxes, in an attempt to ensure that taxes on such foreign digital services are collected and remitted in a more effective and reliable manner.
In both Québec and Saskatchewan, the new regimes require the supplier to register for, charge, collect, and remit sales tax to the respective province. However, it is unclear the extent to which these provinces will be able to enforce their new regimes since the foreign suppliers typically do not have any nexus or establishment in Canada.....
// numerous skips between these passages and this one//
....We understand that Revenu Québec has been proactive in trying to reach out to non-Canadian suppliers and operators of digital platforms that are perceived to be subject to this new registration and collection regime prior to the coming into force of the rules....."- from the article below
P.S. im not saying this is the answer but it could be.
seems that its been finalized.
Looks like its for certain that Quebec has it instilled, I wonder if I can find more provinces that do this.
I don't thinks so, that excerpt specifically already mentioned resident vendors. Since it mentions the 1st of this month and says the resident vendors already had to deal with this before hand.
Does that mean that Nexon has held off passing the tax to Quebec players for almost 9 whole months?
The previous article you posted did mention about nonresident suppliers.
the previous one mentioned they were in talks with foreign entities and that one was posted on Mar.
Also I found another one with a bit more information. Basically Resident Vendors had less time to get ready. They have of get stuff done during jan and Foreign ones had to get stuff done this month.
Here is the bill thats cited and of course the section too.
http://www2.publicationsduquebec.gouv.qc.ca/dynamicSearch/telecharge.php?type=5&file=2018C18A.PDF (page 50)
basically the way I would sum it up is that quebec introduced these rules and probably was in talk with some foreign entities so they could get ready ( ie first article ) and these other two just went into more detail of what kind of legislation they passed in regards to non-residents.
So in reality just like the US supreme court decision this a reaction towards government legislation or judiciary hearings that happened last year ( quebec bill 150 assented on 2018 )
If that's the case then the Canadian government will collect that taxes, not Nexon?
The way it was written in the announcement... it sounded very much like the Nexon company is going to tax canadians for a product of the United States.
United States cannot tax Canadians who are living in Canada.
Unless our own Canadian government is doing the Taxing, it's illegal. <<;
Are they taxing Canadians and then sending that to the Canadian government??? That would be the only way it would not be illegal unless they have a Nexon Canada.
I found more info after I sent you that message, you can read the entire discussion I had with kensa but tl;dr Quebec for sure is wanting to collect taxes from foreign companies that sell digital services to their residents.
and bill thats cited
idk how canada works but maybe its in the same vain, so yes nexon would collect the sales tax and then give to the perspective governments that are wanting it. I'd imagine for sure Quebec would keep tabs on stuff like this but thats just my speculation .
