As a frequently asked question from our new Canada customers, we post the silver jewelry importing tax from China to Cannada here, for reference.
Commercial Package Taxes
There are 3 taxes that might occur if the package is looked as a commercial package.
Customs Tariff (Duty): 8.5% for silver jewelry
Sales Tax (GST/PST/HST): 13% – 15% varies from different province.
Processing Fee & Transaction Fee: charge by UPS/DHL, need to consult with your local DHL or UPS for more details
Airmail – around 3% possibility to levy a tax
Normally use ePacket(under 2kg), which is an upgraded airmail shipping by China Post, will cooperate with Canada Post in Canada domestic shipping. i.e. the Canada Post will deliver the Canada domestic part. The ePacket generally will not be looked as a commercial package so the possibility of levying a tax is relatively small.
Express shipping – very possible to levy tax
UPS/DHL will be more possibly looked as a commercial package.
Also UPS/DHL will charge Processing fee and Transaction fee according to GST/PST/HST
