I am finding very frustrating signing up for any of the dealer stuff as they only have U.S. business and tax number stuff and nothing for Canadian vendor permits and what not. Has anyone else run into this and how did you get by it?
Any US supplier I have dealt with I sent a copy of my Provincial Sales Tax Registration Certificate and proof of GST registration. That's all you need in Canada other than a business license in the city/municipality your store/field is in, to do business.
I've only dealt with small US dealers. Some of the larger ones may have Canadian subsidiaries or Canadian exclusive dealers that they may want you to deal with.
