The UK and Canada have signed a double taxation agreement, meaning the same income is not taxed twice.
The Canada Border Services Agency provides a step-by-step guide for importers of goods into the country, which will help you understand the requirements.
You can zero-rate the sale of your goods to Canada, provided you get and keep evidence of your export, and comply with all other laws.
You must also make sure the goods are exported, and you must get the evidence within 3 months from the time of sale.
The Canada Border Services Agency collects duties and taxes (GST/HST) on behalf of the Canadian government.
Goods valued over CAD$20 (CAD$60 for gifts) are subject to:
- Import duties (varies – eg. 18% for clothing)
- General sales tax (5%)
- Provincial sales tax (0% - 10%)
