Charging HST when you can't charge HST
I don't know who to ask this except for my fellow wonderful RFDers.
I am a freelancer and I currently work for two US companies on contract on a regular basis. I don't charge HST for the work I do obviously because they are in the US.
I've been offered a freelance position with a Canadian company doing the same sort of thing. This isn't a system where I can send invoices, they just pay me for the work I do. Given that they are in Canada, it seems like I should be charging HST, but I can't, because that's not how their system works - it's blanket pay for everyone and it's automated. Does that mean that I will be earning 13% less if I accept them as a client, because I've got to pay HST off of what I earn?
