You've asked Meest about customs duties

Our customers send parcels from Canada to Ukraine every day. Almost everyone is asking about customs duties. Let's find out - how and who calculates customs duty?

When you send a parcel to Ukraine costs up to 150€ are not subject to duty. When the parcel has already arrived at the destination, the recipient pays the dutyIf the parcel costs more than 150€, then the duty is calculated by the following method: The cost of the parcel - 150€ = 10% duty and 20% VAT

When you send a parcel from Ukraine to Canada, the recipient also pays for customs duty. However, if a parcel with a declared value of up to C$20, it won’t be subject to the duty. Who calculates the amount of duty? Customs of the delivery country. The percentage of duty varies from 0% to 18% depending on the shipped goods.

For each parcel that arrives in Canada and costs more than C$20, you need customs clearance - a service provided by a customs broker. For customs clearance of goods, the broker charges a fee (brokerage fee). In turn, the customs broker acts on behalf of the Canadian government.
