09. Customs fees for Candian Shipments
Posted by Stephen Gordon on 19 March 2015 03:43 PM

Canada Customs requires Canadian recipients to pay applicable duties and taxes on each shipment entering Canada. These charges may include PST, GST, HST, duties and other taxes of goods (e.g. excise tax). A brokerage fee is also charged to process shipments and present the requisite customs paperwork to Canada Customs on the importer’s behalf.  Upon check out you can choose between USPS international priority or FEDEX.  Choosing USPS will have a lesser brokerage fee but is often slower then choosing Fedex.  Fedex is usually a much faster option then the postal service but often charge a much higher brokerage fee.  All duties regardless of the carrier are the 100% responsbility of the importer and are not the responsibility of Flashtech.
