Canadian Duty, Taxes and Brokerage
For Canadian orders, we collect the GST or HST (as applicable),
duty (as applicable), as well as shipping charges at point of sale. You avoid
C.O.D. charges and the customs clearance hassles. Orders that are under $20
Canadian value are not subject to duty or tax. Packages destined for the
provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia,
Ontario, and Prince Edward Island we must remit HST, others we remit GST. We will assist to expedite
delivery through Canadian customs by working with a customs broker designated by
us and working closely with them.
When you place an order with The Russell Meerdink Company, you authorize our
designated Canadian customs broker, Russell A. Farrow Limited (canadaplus.com
division), to act on your behalf as the Importer of Record with Canada Border
Services Agency (customs) and the Canadian Revenue Agency to customs clear your
merchandise and pay all duty and taxes as applicable. Amounts collected for
duty and taxes are accepted by us on your behalf for the customs broker to pay
on your behalf.
