HERE'S HOW TO BUY A BERKEY IN CANADA
Selling Berkey products to our Canadian neighbors -
We sell Berkeys to our Canadian neighbors all the time and would be glad to help you out with your purchase.
Canada has a number of taxes as well as duty that apply to purchases made in the US. To make cetain that our
Canadian customers are aware of these charges we take orders from Canada either through direct email or by phone,
whichever is more convenient. It mentions that on the checkout page but it's real easy to miss.
CANADIAN TAXES ON YOUR BERKEY- GST
- Just about everything individuals import into Canada is subject to the
Goods and Services Tax
(GST) of five percent. The GST is calculated after customs duties have been applied.
CANADIAN TAXES ON YOUR BERKEY - PST
- You will also have to pay the applicable
Canadian Provincial Sales Tax (PST) or Quebec Sales Tax (QST).
The provincial retail sales tax rates vary from province to province, as do the goods and services to which the tax is
applied and the way the tax is applied.
In most provinces in Canada a provincial retail sales tax is applied on many goods and services.
As mentioned below, in the provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland and Labrador the provincial sales tax is
combined with the federal goods and services tax in a single harmonized sales tax.
Also Known As: In the provinces of Manitoba and Ontario, the provincial sales tax is called the retail sales tax or RST.
In British Columbia, the provincial sales tax is called the Social Service Tax.
CANADIAN TAXES - HARMONY REIGNS
HARMONIZED SALES TAX APPLIES IN NEW BRUNSWICK, NOVA SCOTIA, NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR
In the provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador and Nova Scotia the five percent federal goods and services tax
is combined with an eight percent provincial retail sales tax and is called the harmonized sales tax (HST).
In Canadian provinces with a Harmonized Sales Tax (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador),
you'll be charged a flat 13 percent, rather than separate GST and PST.
CANADIAN DUTY ON BERKEY PRODUCTS
CATEGORIZATION OF BERKEY FILTERS - Canadian duty is figured
at the customs office with the arrival, scrutiny and categorization of each product.
There is no specific category for water filters that we have found, so it gets placed wherever the customs agent feels it fits.
That can vary as can the duty charged.
CONTACTING CUSTOMS - We suggest you call
the local BIN (Border Information Service) office and get information directly from a customs official.
To find the BIN Office for your area call 1 800 461-9999.
You can find information about the location of your local Border Service Agency Office here -

your Berkey Product processed through Canada Customs at the Canadian border. Fees for that service will be passed along to you.

contact you with the shipping charge.
