Important notice to Canadian webmasters and corporations using Gamma
Gamma is located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and it means that we have to pay the legal business taxes to Canadian webmasters / corporations. If you are a Canadian webmaster / corporation AND are registered for the GST (Goods and Services Tax) or the HST (Harmonized Sales Tax), we have to pay you the applicable tax. Also, if you are located in the province of Quebec, we also have to pay you the QST (Quebec Sales Tax) because we are also located in Montreal, Quebec.
If you are not sure if you should be registered for those taxes, you might want to consult the following sites for more information:
GST and HST
Generally, you have to be registered to those taxes if your sales of taxable goods and services exceed $30,000 per year. If you have more questions about this subject, contact the appropriate tax agencies.
Due to the unique and special type of business we are in, it is not possible for us to calculate the taxes for all Canadian webmaster / corporation at the same time we send checks. Also, we need to have an invoice from all Canadian webmasters that will want to receive taxes, because, otherwise, we wont be able to claim those taxes to the proper tax agencies. In order to pay you those taxes, we need to have from each Canadian webmaster/corporation the following information:
- One (1) invoice for each payment we send you;
- Your registration number for the applicable taxes.
Note that if we pay you the applicable taxes, we will declare those taxes and get a refund from the federal and provincial tax agencies. That means that those agencies will be expecting you to pay them back the taxes that you received from us.
In conclusion, if you are a Canadian webmaster or a Canadian corporation and that we have to pay you the applicable taxes, you should follow the following instructions.
Each time you receive a payment from us, you HAVE to produce an invoice indicating the appropriate tax, send it to us and we will pay the taxes. In order to help you, we made models of invoices that you should follow to make sure that all the information required is on the invoice you will send us.
