440 GBP and shipped DHL Express. Customs/Taxes expected?

What sort/amount of customs, duties, and taxes should I expect? DHL website doesn't have a list or table of amount to pay for declared value of items.

Tax is 13%, duty % depends on what it is IE clothing 16% etc. Then add brokerage.

If the product was made in Europe, then you just have to pay HST (13%) (since CETA) if it goes through the customs check. There might also be a $10 handling/brokerage fee (that's what is was for me on a $500 item).

You will have to pay 1453$ in tax and brokerage. They say they only charge that much for Seks since he's anal about packaging...

Nope. $1453 is the total cost; £440 + duties and taxes plus brokerage comes up to $1453.07
Why can't we all just get along?

$16 plus whatever the taxes/duty are applicable since you never mentioned what the actual item is.
