Quebec has implemented new QST rules that require these Canadian businesses that make supplies in Quebec, and operators of certain digital platforms, to register and collect QST from customers in certain circumstances. These new QST obligations will affect Canadian businesses located outside Quebec that are not currently registered for QST purposes and that sell intangibles (e.g., digital music, software, movies, TV shows and games), services or goods to certain customers who reside in Quebec and who are not registered for QST purposes (i.e., "specified Quebec consumers"). This new requirement to register and collect QST as of September 1, 2019 also applies to businesses outside Canada that are already registered for GST/HST purposes.
