What is Customs?

Besides being something that most shoppers and travellers forget about, Customs agencies exist to secure borders and to collect duties and taxes on goods purchased abroad. Duties and taxes are applied to ensure an even trade balance. In Canada, this function is performed by the CBSA.

What is a broker?

Also known as a customs house agent, a broker represents you in all commercial issues pertaining to Customs: completing forms, advising regulations and obtaining the release of your goods. Once released from Customs’ control, your goods are free to be delivered by the carrier. For individuals, a customs broker can release your purchases when you are not physically present to do so.

What taxes will I owe?

GST (5%) is payable on all importations, in addition to potential duties (ranging from 3%-18%). For individuals importing personal goods, HST or PST are also applicable depending on your province of residence or the port of release.
For a proper quote of the duties and taxes owed, please forward a detailed description of your intended purchase (including its country of manufacture and its cost) to duties@borderbee.com
