duty cost to Canada

Recommended Posts

Can anyone share there experience with importing UM2 to Canada? :cool:

Please specify distributor, shipper, and duty charged.

So far, I have only be able to established that Makershed charges $779 U.S. for pre-paid VAT on UM2 to Ontario, which works out to 18% duty after subtracting 13% HST for Ontario.

On the other hand, dutycalculator.com lists the import duty on UM2 to Canada at 0%.

A related question is whether there really should be a duty on UM2 to Canada. Several posters on this forum have stated that there is Not a duty to the U.S., although there may be a minor importation charge, if they order direct from Ultimaker.

Hopefully, we can clarify these issues so that future purchasers of UM2 can avoid unnecessary duties up to 20% or at least know in advance what to expect.

Alternatively, a Canadian distributor may be needed.

Bought one directly from Ultimaker:

Ordered Feb 13, Shipped Mar 6, received Mar 10, 2015

Euro 1895 + 73 shipping = $2878 Cdn

Tax + Duty = $386 Cdn

This works out to the Ontario 13% HST + a small brokerage fee (with 0% duty)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
