Receiving shipments via DHL vs Canadapost (duties/customs)?
From what I gather, DHL will charge a brokerage/bond service charge (around $10-$13 I think), HST sales tax (13%) and duty (I think 18%).
If I choose Canadapost which will obviously take longer but cheaper to ship, will I only be charged the service fee (approx $10) and HST 13% sales tax? Or will I ALSO be charged duty through canadapost as well?
I haven't purchased many expensive things lately so I can't recall if duty has ever been charged when items come thru canadapost. Does anyone have any recent experience and know for sure?
