W-8 form
Posted: Friday, November 30, 2018 1:58:43 AM
I have a new store on zazzle.ca, not on zazzle.com which is a US based company. My question is, if my store is on a Canadian Zazzle, Why do I have to fill out a W-8 form and give the American Government 30%??? Also, if it is the same company on headquarters are in Canada, Why can't I accept American Money instead of Canadian on my products? If I'm giving the American Government 30% that would be 30% American money, not 30% Canadian. If that's the case, I should be able to have my sales in American money. Otherwise it's not worth all the hard work I put into my store because I would be losing the 30% American and the Canadian Tax as well. That leaves NO profit and just hard work.

Can anyone help me out on this? Thanks.

Zazzle is an American company with headquarters in the United States. If you publish products on the Canadian website they can still be sold internationally I believe. If you fill out the W8-ben form and it is accepted you will not be subject to 30% withholding tax, because the United States and Canada have a tax treaty.

I am not from Canada, but I believe the tax treaty for Canada is 10% withholding tax. These 10% can usually be credited in your country when you pay your income tax there.

If you are on Facebook, there is a group called "International Zazzlers United", which was created for the purpose of dealing with W8-ben forms. It has a lot of good information on this subject. There are fellow Canadians in this group who can help you as well.

You do have a store on zazzle.com. All other zazzle domains are mirrors of the .com. You have a store on every domain that Zazzle has.

Moving this to the International section of the forum as this isn't feedback.

Did you inform the member about moving her post James? Pretty sure nobody is going to find it here.
