My company is in British Columbia, Canada and I import from China. How is the duty and GST calculated?
Duty and GST are calculated on the vendor's selling price minus the actual freight and insurance amount (if applicable) converted into Canadian dollars, this is the value for duty. Then the duty is applied to the value for duty and the GST is applied to the value for duty. Then they are added together which gives us the duty and GST payables.
