Shipping and store policies

No-risk guarantee


Print Publications:
I understand that if I am not satisfied with the publication, I may return my order within 30 days of receipt to receive a full refund. To receive a refund, the publication must be returned in original, re-saleable condition.

Electronic Publications:
I understand that if I am not satisfied with the electronic service, and if I have not used the service excessively, other than what otherwise would be considered normal access during the assessment period, I may request a refund within 30 days of purchase. Refunds will be at the discretion of CPA Canada, after an assessment of product access by the purchaser.

Pro forma invoice

A pro forma invoice will be calculated to provide you with the estimated cost of all orders. The pro forma invoice is subject to any changes in price or policies initiated by CPA Canada at its discretion. In the case of a discrepancy between the pro forma invoice and the actual invoice issued by CPA Canada, CPA Canada's invoice will be binding.

Backordered products

Orders containing a combination of both available and backordered products will be handled as follows:

  1. Available products and all associated shipping, handling, and taxes will be charged at the point of sale.
  2. Once backordered products are shipped, an invoice for the product, along with applicable shipping, handling, and taxes, will be sent.

Shipping and handling


Regular shipping orders are delivered via CanPar, which requires someone to be present to accept delivery.

Shipping and handling is calculated on regular orders in Canada* as follows:

  • Under $250: 15% shipping and handling
  • $250 and over: 10% shipping and handling

*Outside Canada: As above, or actual cost if greater. Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery.


Express orders are shipped via courier with the associated cost, plus the following handling fee:

  • Under $250: 15%
  • $250 and over: 10%


Goods and services tax (GST)

GST will apply to all publications, products, and services (not applicable to orders shipped outside Canada).

Harmonized sales tax (HST)

Effective July 1, 2010, the provincial portion of HST will apply on the full price of all publications (other than printed books), products, and services, including shipping and handling charges.

Quebec sales tax (QST)

QST will apply on the full price of all publications, products, and services, including shipping and handling charges (Québec residents only).

Book standing orders

Purchasers of books on standing order automatically receive the next edition of these publications, as well as any supplemental material that is published between editions. CPA Canada will invoice you upon shipment of the material. (Note: If a new edition is published within 45 days of purchasing the prior edition, the new edition will be supplied at no charge.)
