Are the GST/HST and/or PST payable on imported goods?

The Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a 5% tax, and, unless specifically exempted, applies to all goods imported into Canada, whether commercial or personal. There are different rules for how and when the HST will apply to commercial and non-commercial importations. The HST will generally not apply to importations on which the GST does not apply. Goods accounted for as commercial goods under the Customs Act, that are destined for or imported into provinces where HST applies, as well as specified motor vehicles and mobile homes, will be subject to the 5% GST at the time of importation, regardless the port of crossing into Canada. Non-commercial goods (personal use items) will be subject to the HST/PST at the time of importation by residents of the provinces where HST/PST applies, regardless of where the resident enters Canada.
