Customs, Duties and Taxes

Customs, Duties and Taxes

The recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination. Orders shipped outside of Canada may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches the recipient's country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be fulfilled by the recipient. Canadian Hook Inc. has no control over these charges, nor can Canadian Hook Inc. predict what they may be.

Customs policies vary widely. You should contact your local customs office for more information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.

Note:  Customs offices in some countries or regions require the importer of record to provide a particular form of identification before releasing a shipment. You may be required to provide an identification number such as a Unique Identification Number, CPF, or Tax ID.

Please consider this information when placing your order.

To calculate the import tax and import duty amount for your shipment, multiply the taxable value of your shipment by your destination country’s tax and duty percentage. Remember, import duty percentages vary for each category of goods. The taxable value is usually based on the value of the goods, but depending on the valuation method of a country, it can also include other amounts.
