Do I need to fill out a W-9 form if I live in Canada but do consulting work for an American company?
After moving back to Canada from the United States

, I've started doing some consulting work from Canada for a company in the states (via Terminal Services, VPN, etc). I have a registered Canadian Corporation, and submit an invoice to the American company monthly. They're asking me to fill out a W-9 form, which seems like some sort of US tax-payer registration. I don't intend on paying taxes in the states, (I will however pay the Canadian taxes on any revenue I generate). Can anyone explain ( or point me to some resources on the web ) what I should do?
Bonus question: I'm looking for information on charging GST on services for export (currently not, but should I?) on the web. Does it exist?
