Sales tax in Canada
GST/HST is charged for orders printed locally in Canada. Canadian Federal GST is charged at 5%. This is combined in most Provinces with the local PST, which are set between 0% and 10%, to create a
Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) rate as in the chart below:
VAT in Chile
When a local Chilean customer places an order for print products on the Gelato website, it enters into a service contract with Gelato Chile and will receive an invoice from Gelato Chile.
For domestic sales from Gelato Chile to local customers, 19% VAT will be added.
If the customer billing entity is outside Chile and would like to pay for printed materials delivered in Chile, Gelato ASA will bill the customer for the printed material. Because Gelato ASA is not registered in Chile for TAX purposes, no Chilean VAT will be included in the invoice from Gelato ASA to the non-Chilean customer.
Indirect Taxes in Brazil
When a local Brazilian customer places an order for print products on the Gelato website, it enters into a service contract with Gelato Brazil and will receive an invoice from Gelato Brazil.
Gelato Brazil will charge Brazilian customers: 1,65% PIS and 7,6% COFINS (i.e. 9,25% cumulative under APM), and 2% ISS (if Gelato Brazil is incorporated in São Paulo).
If the customer billing entity is outside Brazil and would like to pay for printed materials delivered in Brazil, Gelato ASA will bill the customer for the printed material. Because Gelato does not have a PE (permanent establishment) in Brazil, no Brazilian VAT will be included on the invoice from Gelato ASA to the non-Brazilian customer.
