TORONTO – Canadian companies are getting ready to start collecting federal sales taxes under a sweeping overhaul of the country’s tax system and a new tax treaty with the United States.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has introduced measures including new taxes on large companies that are shipping goods abroad, and reducing the tax relief of Canadian manufacturers to help spur investment and job creation in the country.

The government is also planning to overhaul an existing tax treaty with the U.S., to be negotiated with U.S. officials under Canada’s new “mixed” tax system.

Citizens of Canadian companies who live in the U.S. will no longer pay sales taxes, while U.S. companies who do business with Canadians will have to pay U.S. tax.

It’s estimated the changes would generate $100-million in new federal revenues over five years, as the revised tax agreements are introduced.

But analysts and politicians say Harper’s economic strategy is to sell the new tax system – and the Canadian-U.S. tax pact – in a much more subtle way by making it clear that the changes are primarily intended to create jobs and increase investment.

Harper will speak at the International Economic Forum for Global Investment on Tuesday in Toronto.

“We know that the job of attracting business investment in Canada starts with making sure that Canadian companies do not have the burden of higher taxes,” Harper said during a trip to Brazil’s headquarters last month. “But a tax system is only as effective in stimulating economic activity as its fairness and its simplicity.”

The prime minister said the current tax arrangements put Canadian companies “at a disadvantage” compared with overseas competitors who may be able to pay less than 15 per cent in federal taxes.

Critics contend that the new tax code will benefit a relatively small number of wealthy, corporate Canadians to the detriment of average Canadians, with smaller companies having to pay higher taxes.
