Most new clients with these personal-type shipments come to us unsure of what their first step is. If you need help answering questions like, “How do I clear customs?”, “How much does it cost?”, or “What documents do I need?”… Simply contact us today!
Personal shipments are imported NOT for commercial, industrial or institutional use; they are shipments of goods that will be used by you for personal use. In addition to the cost of the goods, you may incur additional costs when importing a shipment. Not all goods are dutiable; those made in either the USA or Mexico fall under NAFTA and are exempt from duties.
For all other goods made in other countries, a duty may be applicable according to the Canada Customs Tariff. In addition, Canada Customs requires payment of GST (5%) and PST (depending on the province) on the CAD value of the goods, regardless of the country of origin. White & White is a registered Customs Broker and we are authorized by CBSA to collect duty and taxes due on importation from our clients and to remit those funds to the government.
