Non-Québec resident suppliers that are located outside Canada and not registered for the purposes of the goods and services tax (GST) meet the definition of “foreign specified suppliers” and have until 1 January 2019 to comply with the new provisions of the Act respecting the Québec sales tax (AQST). Under these new provisions, these foreign specified suppliers are required to register for the Québec sales tax (the QST) using a new specified registration system and will have to collect the QST on taxable incorporeal movable property and services they supply in Québec to specified Québec consumers. Non-Québec resident suppliers located outside Canada that are registered for the GST and non-Québec resident suppliers located in Canada meet the definition of Canadian specified suppliers and have until 1 September 2019 to comply with the new provisions.
