You Are Responsible For ALL Duties, Taxes and Tariffs
As with most countries, Canada applies duties, taxes and tariffs enforced on imported goods. To avoid unpleasant surprises at the time of delivery, it is important to communicate these additional fees to your customers at checkout.
Goods and Services Tax
There are 3 kinds of duties and taxes for items being imported into Canada. First, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a 5% federal tax that applies to items being sold to Canadian customers for domestic consumption. Second, the Harmonized Tax (HST) is imposed by a handful of Canadian provinces to combines their provincial sales tax and the general sales tax. Finally, the Provincial Sales Tax (PST) is enforced in provinces that do not participate in the HST collection process. The PST rate varies by province and ranges from 5% to 9.75%.
In addition to duties and taxes, your Canadian customer may need to pay tariffs. Tariffs are dependent on where the product was made, not the country where the product is purchased. NAFTA eliminates tariffs on all goods made in the U.S. and shipped to Canada. However, if your product includes anything that was made outside the U.S., then your Canadian customer will have to pay tariffs on those components.
