    Sima,

    If a country isn't listed, we don't collect VAT or other taxes for purchases in that country.

    So if a country isn't listed (i'm in Canada and selling to Canadien), is it my responsibility to give a % of taxes to the Canadien gouvernement when Clickbank pay me ? Do I owe the Canadien gouvernement money (except paying my income tax at the end of the year) ?

    Charles,

    You as a vendor are responsible for paying any taxes that we do not collect or remit.

    Thanks Owen for your answer.

    So just to be 100% clear.

    Even if you say in this article: "ClickBank is considered the final retailer/reseller for all products sold through ClickBank, it is our responsibility to collect and remit various types of taxes based on the customer's location." I am considered the vendor and I am responsible for paying taxes that Clickbank do not collect or remit. Yes or no ?

    So if taxes on sales is 5% in Canada... for every 1$ that Clickbank give me, I got to take 0,05$ and send it to the Canadien gouvernement. Yes or No ?

    Thank you very much for your help, my accountant is really confused on this subject so I realy need a clear answer to know what to do.

    Charles,

    I've looked into this a bit more, and the article may be incorrect about what taxes are collected in Canada. I'll investigate further and get back to you.

    Owen, any answer yet? I'm from India, and I would just like to know one thing: Will there be any tax deductions on the money that CB will pay me? I can always manage my taxes here in India; however I don't want to be double-taxed, once for the US, and once for India. Please lemme know. Thanks

    Nazib,

    If a country isn't listed, we don't currently collect taxes in that country.

    So, if a customer from the US buys your product, we'd charge them sales tax and then remit those taxes, but we wouldn't charge you any taxes.

    Hi Owen,

    I live in the US state of Tennessee and I'm an affiliate of Clickbank (not a vendor). I am still waiting to receive my first commission. When I receive my commission, will I be responsible for state and federal taxes or will Clickbank deduct taxes from my affiliate commissions?

    Desalegn,

    ClickBank collects and remits sales taxes in the US, so you don't need to worry about them. You'll still owe income taxes for money that you earn from ClickBank, though.

    I'm frustrated now Owen. I counted on you and you do not seem motivated to help me. It's been two months. You told me that you would help me and you still give me no answer to my question. That's not cool !

    If you can not have the answer, can you transfer me to a competent and proactive person who will give me the answer ?

    My question is simple ! ClickBank does not collect sales tax in Canada so is it my responsibility to remit sales tax on my Canadian sales to the Canadian government ?

    Charles,

    You're right to be frustrated. It has taken a long time, and I'm sorry.

    I got our legal and finance folks to give me this response:

    "ClickBank monitors sales and VAT related taxes in domestic and foreign jurisdictions. We are not currently collecting and remitting a sales tax for Canada but we are in the process of analyzing Canadian tax laws and will respond accordingly. If you have question about your personal tax obligations, I recommend that you contact a local accountant for assistance."

    If that doesn't clarify things, you could also file a support ticket for additional help.

    Thanks Owen.

    So this means that ClickBank is responsible for collecting taxes in the countries where it is required and that I am not responsible for personnally collecting and remitting sales taxes on my sales in countries where ClickBank do not collect taxes.

    Yes or no ?

    That's the only answer I need !

    Please !

    Charles,

    Yes. Ultimately, it's ClickBank's responsibility to collect and remit those taxes.

    Gideon,

    The taxes we collect - sales and VAT - are taken out at the time of transaction. What you see in your ClickBank account is just your portion.

    See the How We Pay You article for more information about our payment methods and schedules.
