Setting Taxes For Provinces (Canada)

Hello all,

Wondering if the "Local" selector is the best option for setting HST/GST in Canada, as the provinces have differing tax rates. The local option is described as being for a specific city. Odd that Reuters etc. does not automatically calculate HST in Canadian provinces that charge it. Am I missing something that would be simpler than using "Local" tax rate to set each one individually?

    Hi @atom_443,

    You are right, "Local" is the city-level option. For provinces and territories you would choose "Region". I have just tried BC and AB: taxes were calculated as 7%+5% for BC and 5% for AB. You will need to not only create the taxes, but to apply them to relevant categories, too.

    Let us know if you run into any other issues.

    Worth noting, in our latest version 2.0, taxes can be calculated automatically for US and Canadian based customers, based on their address. More information on that here:

    If you're using that and not seeing correct rates, please let us know and we'd be happy to take a look.
