<< do not charge US customers HST. >>

but CRA will want their cut... regardless.  yes?
so on every $100 you invoice, 11.50 is HST.  (88.50 * 1.13% = $100.)

1. Incorporation is expensive, but will make you more attractive to
future customers.

3. You do not charge US customers HST.

4. Get your payment via wire transfers. International cheques take 30
business days to clear. Wire's are available immediately.

7. If you travel to the US on business always tell immigration that
you are there to meet with clients rather than to work.
