Import duty charges for Canadians.

Post by redroadster68 »

Hi Canadians :regarding USA parts distributors
I’ve heard that if Canadians are purchasing parts, new or used from the States and the parts are specific to a car over 25 yrs old…. That there is no duty charges. Parts distributor would need to declare that on a form…???? “ vintage car parts” over 25 yrs old “
Thought?
Just looking for clarification.

Some information about duty and brokerage fees into Canada

Auto parts for vehicles >25 years old are duty free into Canada no matter the country of origin. Ask the shipper to indicate HS code 9966.00.00 on the customs declaration. This Tariff Item of the Customs Tariff gives duty free status to "articles for use solely or principally with those vehicles manufactured more than 25 years prior to the date of importation". Information about the interpretation of this tariff item can be found at http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/publications ... 0-eng.html

I don’t think I’ve ever been charged duty.

Standard tax, that’s another story. I believe this does not exempt you from G/P/HST.
