Hi you guys , i,m wondering has anyone dealt before with importing stuff ( appliances , goods ). they are restaurant appliances . What i got from searching and askin that ,i,m gonna be looking for 8% on appliances and 5 % on goods. My question is how do they set he value in order to determine the duty ? is it all on the bills and recipes ? i know its long daunting way but its worth it .

Importing into Canada
is the article subject to some other federally-imposed condition? For example, goods for retail sale have to comply with labelling laws; motor vehicles have to meet emission control standards; food and agricultural products have to pass the necessary health and sanitary checks. Customs can usually advise you on this, but you can refer to the useful telephone numbers list below.


is the article subject to some privately-certified standard? For example, all electrical appliances and equipment must be certified by the Canadian Standards Association International before they can be sold in Canada. Call the CSA International at (416) 747-4000 (or toll-free 1-800-463-6727) for information on electrical and other standards.

is there a provincial rule to comply with? For example, imports of liquor, wine and beer require prior authorization from the appropriate liquor commission before Customs will clear them.

most goods imported are subject to customs duties (imposed under the Customs Tariff) and the GST; both these are collected by Customs at the time of importation, and levied on the landed value of the goods. Customs also collect anti-dumping and countervailing duties on a few goods that have been found to be sold under unfair conditions.

Default Importing for private use

Do those conditions apply when you move across the border and bring household items, small furniture, clothes, linen, etc., with you? Considering that those are used items, not for resale, and for your own private use, is there any tax that you would be responsible for?

There is a distinct difference between importing items for a business and bringing household goods with you when you move to Canada.

Here's the criteria for household goods you wish to bring into Canada when you move: Before you arrive: Prepare to move - Bringing goods to Canada

There where i have some clouds because I,m importing those equipments for my personal use in restaurant not for sale . actually i did try to contact them but there was a messaging box . But i think i read in their website that they test products and give upon the results certificates of quality to sell those products , they never mentioned anything about using them ..?

Of course importing food has its own prickly way

Right on !! thats my biggest concern ! You see , i get to buy these equipments from appointed agent in south Asia and Middle East for famous and common American and European brands for 60 % off the price here in Canada !! nothing being sold under unfair conditions , and i have singed , dated and stamped bills and invoices . So , are they gonna take these prices into account when they set their values ?

I totally appreciate the input man .
