I'm very new to this forum and may very well be the last place I can turn to without shelling out money on account/tax counselling.
I'm looking to open an ecommerce business very shortly (British Columbia based, sole proprietorship).
I will be acting as an online reseller. My clients will be in the US (I may expand this to Canada in the future, but mainly in the US for now).
My distributors (who carries and warehouses the goods) are located in the US (California and Pennsylvania).
I can get the business registered easy enough, I already have a fulfillment website lined up and my distribution channel is all but cemented. The big info gap I am facing is with regards to taxes.
How do I charge taxes? Do I charge them individually to each state? Someone mentioned VAT to me...how does this apply? Where do I remit taxes?
Oh the headaches. Forum-gods I beg thee for thy help! Any and all advice/answers are much appreciated.
