Why am I am being charged with taxes in Canada?

Recently Canada announced some changes in taxation regulations. The scope of the federal sales tax regime (GST/HST) has been extended to non-resident providers of digital services starting July 1, 2021.

Hence a tax rate of 5% GST (Goods and Services tax) will be applicable nationwide.

In several provinces this tax will be combined with the provincial tax. The cumulative percentage of federal (5% GST) and provincial tax (depending on each jurisdiction) generates the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST). You can see the applicable tax rates for your region as follows:

Therefore as of July 1st 2021 Cleverbridge is obliged to charge taxes on electronic services delivered to all consumers in Canada.​ If you have a renewal, you may see a difference in your price due to these changes.
