KDP Tax Information for a Canadian publishing with a Corp.
« on: November 14, 2017, 12:16:01 PM »
Hi there, I'm hoping there's some other Canadian self-publishers out there who can help me with a couple of the more obscure parts of the KDP Tax information process.  I am publishing through my own incorporated company (100% owned by me) in Ontario and I totally operate within Canada.  There are two things I'm confused about:

1. Limitation on Benefit: What do I select for this? I'm guessing it's "Company that meets the ownership and base erosion test" since the company's 100% owned by me, but all the legalese out there makes me less than sure about my answer.  Any help here would be welcome!

2. Foreign TIN: Since I am doing this as a corporation, do I enter my Canada Revenue Business Number here?

Many thanks in advance!

It's been a while since I filled this out for our corp so I'm not 100% certain on your first question.

On your second question, you are correct that you should use your CRA BN as your foreign tax ID number.
