​Many online platform operators must collect Manitoba's 7% retail sales tax (RST) starting December 1, 2021. Manitoba recently expanded its RST rules to require online platform operators to register and collect RST on taxable sales facilitated through their platforms, regardless of whether they are located inside or outside the province. As a result, operators of online sales platforms and online accommodation platforms are now subject to these rules and must prepare their systems. New RST rules also require providers of streaming services to register and collect RST on streaming services, effective December 1, 2021. These changes were included in enabling legislation that Manitoba enacted on October 14, 2021.
