Why Sprintax TDS Canada?

Single solution for all your non-resident tax compliance. Because accounting doesn’t need to be complicated!

Tax determination software

Sprintax TDS Canada has been developed to ensure that international students, scholars and non-resident employees are taxed correctly on income earned in Canada, so that the correct amount of tax is withheld and reported to the CRA.

We use innovative tools to calculate tax withholding for international students and non-resident employees, determine whether they are entitled to any tax treaties or deductions and confirm their eligibility for tax credits. We also provide users with every relevant tax form required.

Determines tax residency status

International students are typically considered to be a ‘resident’, ‘non-resident’ or ‘deemed resident’ for tax purposes. Meanwhile, most working holidaymakers in Canada are considered to be non-residents. Sprintax TDS Canada easily determines tax residency status for users, based on their residential ties in Canada.
